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.

  • Awesome place. Easy access. Great collections. Huge archives and world war collection. Exhibitions and shows are awesome. Some special exhibitions are always going on. Entry is free for Auckland residents, however some ID proof of being a local resident is needed to be shown to get entry ticket.

  • Awesome experience! My two kids loved the school holiday program of Soldier or Stretcher Bearer they attended on Saturday Oct 14, 2017. They wished it was a bit longer and more activities. The staff was amazing, entertaining as well as informative. It was so fun. Thank you!

  • We love it here. Me and my 2 kids try to come often, especially when there's special exhibitions going on. They have a Kai room, which is always clean with sanitizer son the tables. They have a kids room which is very informative and the Auckland museum staff are great with the little ones.

  • A museum to be proud of. It has huge breadth and depth of information about the wars, and handles the events with the utmost respect. Libraries, staff and resources were readily available to offer any additional knowledge that needed to be acquired. Staff can generally make experiences pleasant and enjoyable, or downright atrocious. The staff here facilitated the former experience, as they were kind, polite and professional. The museum was both clean and tidy. At calm periods, its corridors of history brought about immersive and surreal experiences, which I felt to be truly breathtaking. It's well organised and structured nature contributed to a better viewing experience. And it's free for NZ citizens, so what's there not to love?

  • Absolutely worth the visit, I might even say a "must see" when you come to Auckland! Other than the name suggests, it is not exclusively about war history (NZ's "involvement" in wars is a part of the exhibition), but about "Kiwi" history in general, including interesting aspects of Maori / Polynesian heritage. Exhibits are well-presented, and the museum itself is located beautifully above the city in a lovely old building (nice view from upstairs)!
