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 museums. Auckland War Memorial Museum is one of the best out there. Definitely worth the visit. It is free for residents. So better bring your proof of address if you have a strong feeling that you will get asked for it. Plenty of history stored in this museum. Even the hill where it is constructed has meaning. So it is pretty awesome. Been there a couple of times. If I am not mistaken, they have events too every week or every month. That is another to look out for. Awesome awesome awesome.

  • Great place to go. Especially if you live in Auckland, ITS FREE. Spent a good 4hours there. Great displays around the while place and they are always changing. Loved the volcano area, very good information. Especially with the risk in Auckland. Building is beautiful with great views over Auckland. Will return.

  • Awesome as always. Friendly and helpful staff and interesting exhibits. The butterfly exhibition that was on at the time of our last visit wad amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by both my young children, so much so that we came back for a second visit

  • Great museum to wander through slowly. Very dense with a large section devoted to the two world wars and New Zealand contribution to them. Step outside for great views of the city, walks around the domain and the winter gardens. The memorial itself is very powerful with a hall of remembrance inside the museum for serviceman that never came back to Auckland

  • Great exhibits & helpful staff. Maori show was top-notch. Especially liked the special (temporary) exhibit on Women's Rights & the Struggle for Equality. Very well done.
