Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland Reviews

  • A well located art gallery, though parking in this area is either very challenging or expensive. So it's highly recommended to walk or take a bus, if you can. The main foyer inside the gallery often host various interesting artworks, some are dynamic/interactive one. The gallery also have a great collection of the Victorian era art pieces. If you're a member, you can get some nice perks as well, such as free entry to the paid exhibition. Though their free exhibition are as good as their paid one. Every other Saturdays, there's free tango dancing at the amphitheatre behind the gallery.

  • Auckland Art Gallery has been transformed in recent years into a beautifully modern building. That said, the new hasn't come at the expense of the historic charm of the original building. On the contrary, it's a beautiful space with visitor enjoyment and comfort top of mind. The quality of the exhibitions in recent months has been superb and I particularly enjoy coming here to experience a refreshing change of pace and some inspiration. The café is nice and well worth a visit. All in all a great venue to visit, for both locals and tourists alike.

  • We had a great day taking our young children to the Gallery. With small children you sometimes worry that you will be shouted at for turning up to an art gallery with really young kids but we were very kindly and understandingly asked to watch them with certain installations. However they were on a whole encouraged to be there. It was a great visit and it feels like its something that we don't have to miss out on just because we have children. Thank you to Auckland Art Gallery and staff.

  • What a beautiful building and amazing collection. As ratepayers our entry was free (bring some proof of your address. I used my driver's licence). Really friendly and engaged staff. A really awesome way to get some culture in. One of the best experiences in Auckland.

  • Great art gallery, free for locals people or 20$ for visitors. Free places to store your back safely. Multiples expositions on different levels. There is something for everyone's taste. We went 2 hours before closing and it wasn't enough. We had to cut our visit short.
