Auckland Art Gallery

The Auckland Art Gallery was the first permanent art gallery in New Zealand and is now home to the largest collection (over 14,000 works) in the country. The main gallery displays many historical works by Maori, Pacific and New Zealand artists alongside a considerable collection of international works.

The New Gallery hosts the contemporary art collection in a building that is a mix of Edwardian and modern styles.

The gallery has a calendar of events that include traveling exhibitions, lectures, family days and holiday programs. At 2pm each day there is a free tour of the gallery. The main gallery is currently being renovated and when the new wing opens in mid-2011 there will be 50% more space for exhibits.

Practical Info

Any bus heading downtown will take you within a short walk of the gallery. If you're already in the inner city then jump on a LINK bus which stops at the gallery.
