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.

  • I love this museum. The staff are so friendly and down-to-earth. The atmosphere is modern yet still respectful to history. Full of local colour, and unlike some museums I have been to in other countries, you are free to take photos in most places (but possibly not everywhere, always check for signs). It's a welcoming place to visit, despite its imposing structure it doesn't feel dark or cold. The shop is lovely. The cafes feel relaxing. The place is often busy and crowded but it's not uncomfortable. This is due to the way the exhibits are arranged, I think it's very well set out. They often have special events going on to keep things interesting.

  • Always a lovely place to go with interesting exhibitions (women's suffrage, Bastion Point photos and an interactive butterfly collection this time round.) Always clean and well kept. Cafe food was same prices as average cafe and grounds beautiful to lunch and walk around in after with big establish trees and a short walk to the Winter Gardens.

  • 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.

  • Fantastic place for Maori culture and history. The volcano exhibit was also great, complete with eruption simulation that made me cringe. Not too overwhelming in terms of size. The location is great with views of the city. A terrific rainy day activity, well worth the trip. Free for Auckland residents!

  • Went and visited here during the feminist exhibition. It absolutely blew my mind and some of the displays brought me to tears. It was touching and moving and clearly the team had put a great deal of thought and time into the displays.
