“One of the best museums in the world”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

The Maorii welcome event at the museum is well presented ,some of their history, the tradition of their dance and warrior welcome explained
Some areas of the museum have been updated in the past few years ,the history and artifacts are well displayed.A guided tour is worth the extra cost to get a better sense of this amazing country.

“Well worth a visit on a rainy day”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Easily reached by bus (InterLink via Parnell Street), this is a very well displayed museum. The Maori displays are exceptional as is the 2nd level, which is the War Museum and the displays of New Zealand participation in the various wars was very well done, and quite moving.

“Go See it!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Really nicely done! So much to see there that a few hours is very necessary to take it all in. We had heard that the shows were good as well, but found out later what we had missed!

“Maori Cultural Show is 5 Star!”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The Auckland Museum is fascinating! Situated in the beautiful domain there's so much to do. I always recommend the Maori Cultural Show to all my friends (although call ahead to reserve a place) as it's a great experience. The War Memorial part is also amazing and I always head to Dawn Service on ANZAC Day and look through this section afterwards. There are great pieces on our history and Civil Defence areas - you can even witness a volcanic erruption and earthquake. There's so much to do here, great stuff for children and families. It's worth a good day visit!!
