Sculptureum Tours

Sculptureum
Opened in 2017 in Matakana, north of Auckland, Sculptureum is a sculpture garden, art gallery, restaurant, and vineyard in one. The many animal sculptures in the gardens delight kids, while six indoor galleries display glass work and abstract art interesting to adults, making Sculptureum a popular day-trip destination for all.

The Basics
Sculptureum represents the extensive art collection of Anthony and Sandra Grant. Best described as quirky, the collection has been selected to amuse and delight visitors, who can wander the gardens that change with the seasons, admiring the many sculptures, and explore the six indoor galleries organized by media and theme. The on-site restaurant, Rothko, serves fresh seasonal produce accompanied by Sculptureum’s award-winning wines, produced at their own vineyard. The complex hosts many special events, such as Friday drinks evenings and themed holiday events.

Many travelers visit Sculptureum independently. A number of tours to the Matakana area include a visit to Sculptureum, alongside other local attractions such as vineyards and markets.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Sculptureum is a must for art lovers and families.
  • You’re welcome to take photos at Sculptureum for private use.
  • Umbrellas and sun parasols are available to make visiting in any weather more comfortable.
  • Keep kids off the sculptures—they’re not for climbing.
  • Schedule 2–3 hours to visit Sculptureum, plus extra time if dining at Rothko.
  • Reservations for Rothko are recommended.

How to Get There
Sculptureum is located just outside Matakana, about an hour’s drive north of central Auckland. If driving independently, head north on State Highway 1 toward Warkworth, then follow the signs east to Matakana.

When to Get There
Sculptureum and Rothko are open daily except Tuesday and Wednesday. Sculptureum is open from 10am until 5pm, whereas the restaurant has different hours depending on the day of the week, so check before visiting to avoid disappointment.

Kawau Island
Off the coast not far from Matakana, popular and picturesque Kawau Island is known for its excellent snorkeling, and it also offers quiet beaches, walking trails through the bush, and historic sites. To get there, take a ferry or water taxi from Sandspit, near Warkworth.
