Museums and Galleries in Auckland

Auckland Museums are some of the best in the country, everything from maritime and Maori history, to art, geology and even a reconstructed 19th century village. With over 25 museums in the city, don't wait for a rainy day, to discover them.

Museums in Auckland are mostly modern, well thought out, and family friendly. Forget the stuffy image of museums being just thousands of things in glass boxes. The buzzword these days is 'interactivity', and museums in Auckland really do lead the way in exciting, informative exhibitions. Maritime history is an integral part of Auckland's personality, and you can find great museums with a naval theme, in Viaduct Harbour, Waiheke Island, and Torpedo Bay. If you're a history buff, head to the Auckland Museum or the pioneer villages at Helensville and Howick. You'll find some great Maori stories and exhibits in Warkworth and Waiuku, while in Puhoi there's a fascinating tribute to Auckland's Czech immigrants. Transport nuts can find a playground of stuff, from car and railway museums, to aviation and military museums. The Auckland Museum is definitely the place to go to find out more about the city, past and present.
