The building is gorgeous. But there's nothing inside. I also don't like how everything in Auckland costs $30/person. Parking can be $48/three hours. Beware! If you want culture, go to New York.

We viewed the outside of the new extension, which is a beautiful wooden canopy & glass box design. Good shop, especially for books. We opted out of going round the gallery because we couldn’t justify the $20 pp entry fee for non NZ residents, when...More

The museum is interesting, has a nice variety of artwork, and is not overwhelming. Enjoyable place to visit, especially on a rainy day. Worth the visit.

An engaging gallery providing an eclectic mix of modern, Maori and contemporary New Zealand art, alongside a limited international collection. Not too overwhelming - a couple of hours is enough to visit all of the galleries.

We only had a limited time to explore the gallery and the cost inclusive tour by the very well informed guide was the ideal way to see this wonderful gallery. The linkage of the modern extension with the old refurbished original and the adjoining park...More

The Auckland Art Gallery had some interesting stuff. There was a lot of installation art, and that isn't really my cup of tea. If that's your thing you'll probably really like this one. There is a cafe, but the service was really slow and the...More

There seemed to be more staff than patrons in the Gallery, so the fact that staff in every room told me to take my (small) leather handbag off my back was highly irritating. Especially as they were generally looking at their phones prior to telling...More

There is a gallery of older style paintings that you see in English art galleries but generally focuses on modern and Maori art

The museum has a wider collection - many rare "historical/heritage" works of art pertaining to New Zealand
