Auckland Museum - Review

The Auckland War Memorial Museum is one of the most important museums in New Zealand and showcases rare artefacts that depict the story of Auckland along with its Natural and Military history. The building itself stands out from the surrounding landscape owing to its rich Neo-classical design. The memorial Cenotaph located close to the building as well as the exhibits inside the museum pay tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives for the country. 

The Maori Cultural Show is the highlight of the museum and is an absolute must-see while the museum store is apt for buying souvenirs. Stop by at the café for a small snack to end the visit.

  • Just signed up with My Museum Card which will allow free entry to the museum going forward. If you are Auckland residence then take your utility bill or rates invoice and drivers License to prove your eligibility for this card. I usually visit 5-6 times a year and it's a great place to see and learn historical info and modern development. The new Butterfly exhibition is on at Level 2. The Air New Zealand historical show was one of my favourite. Parking fee for covered car park is reasonable.

  • Been here many times. Usually good customer service. Very easy to get in even if you're international. Great exhibits. I think my favourite is definitely the volcano exhibit. lots of information, very interactive with the rocks and awesome volcano simulation room! Also, it's in the most beautiful spot in Auckland.

  • Very informative museum. First, thank you to the staff at the museum. They were friendly and helpful. Second, parents bring your kids. It is very informative and is growing, with more exhibits planned for the near future. Easy to navigate with occasional benches and chairs for you to take a break. It is a large museum with multiple levels. You may not need the break but it is a nice option for those of us who do. At the time I was there, a special butterfly exhibit had recently opened. Another Great exhibit to bring the kids. The museum also includes a library, a cafe, and a coffee bar. All great assets to the building.

  • The Weird and Wonderful gallery is excellent for kids of all ages. Land and Origins galleries are also great. My 3.5 yr old found the volcano house simulator a bit scary but also had heaps of questions later. Great family day out

  • I can't count the amount of times I have been here. But every time feels like a new experience. There is a new attraction here for butterflies so if there is a special little child in your life that adores butterflies this will be the place to go. It's very interactive and knowledgable. The staff are extremely friendly and always willing to help which is great with the kiddies.
