Hawkes Bay Museum And Art Gallery - Review

Having undergone a major restoration project in recent years, this terrific “big little” museum has once again opened its doors to the public. In a remarkable compact area, the intelligently designed centre gives off an impression of magnificence and splendour as it strives to bring together the best of New Zealand’s cultural heritage to one place. One entire section dedicated to the earthquake that levelled Napier and reconstruction that followed. Another delves into an intimate look into Napier’s history. The artwork compiled comes from the very best of New Zealand’s old and contemporary genius. The museum also holds some of the country’s best Maori archaeological collections. Right outside, a startlingly impressive café has come up, almost as big a crowd puller as the museum itself. The 330-seat theatre within museum is no less impressive; leading architect Guy Natusch designed it.

  • Was ok. More of a gallery than a museum. Too much space dedicated to the earthquake. Almost need a separate building as a earthquake museum. A lot of the collections are still in storage. Bit sad. Great helpful staff.

  • Great time here.. my 6 year old took me along and showed me around.beautiful lady playing the piano.

  • Usually interesting exhibitions on here and a good selection of events at the theatre too.

  • A wonderful place. I love the history on display. The library, though small, has great service.

  • Went to several NZIFF films at this venue. Good viewing space but seats are not very comfortable. Wine available.
