What a fantastic venue for displaying art. The building itself is great to look at, lots of nice big open areas for displaying the art. The views out the windows out towards the coast also very good. Staff were very attentive and friendly.

I recommend visiting Te Uru gallery because of its original interior, as well as exterior design, but also because of the concept of bringing well-known artists to New Zealand (often for the very first time). Thanks a lot for Steve McCurry, as well as Roger...More
