Auckland War Memorial Museum

Welcome to Auckland War Memorial Museum, where exciting stories of the Pacific, New Zealands people, and the flora and fauna and landforms of our unique islands, are told within a memorial dedicated to those who have sacrificed their lives for our country.

In one of New Zealand’s most outstanding historical buildings, boldly situated in the Domain – a central city pleasure garden – you encounter exhibitions that will excite you with the artistic legacy and cultures of the peoples of the Pacific; the monumental carvings, buildings, canoes and taonga (treasures) of the Maori; and the diversity of cultures which now combine to form the rich tapestry of race, nationality and creed which is modern New Zealand.

The Museum is a key destination for families. Children are encouraged to develop an understanding of the world around them by exploring cultures, the arts, science and the environment.

E nga reo, e nga mana, e nga karangatanga o te motu, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa. E mihi ana ki a ratou, e hinga mai nei, e hinga atu na, e hinga mai ra, haere, haere, haere, haere whakaoti atu. Ratou ki a ratou kua wheturangitia, tatou ki a tatou te kanohi ora, kati kua ea.

Welcome to Tamaki Paenga Hira, Auckland Museum

For 150 years Auckland Museum, has protected and cared for the taonga, the treasures, of Iwi and Hapu from throughout Aotearoa. And together we are now forging ahead, to create new levels of understanding and enlightenment in the presentation of Maori culture and customary values, that will benefit all visitors to the Museum.

The Museum will link you to the numerous Maori activities, operations, exhibitions, programmes and events that occur daily within our Whare Taonga, and also out in the community.

This building and the exhibits within, represent the shared history of two peoples working together, fighting together, living side by side, and moving forward into the future. Many of the taonga you see here represent our ancestors, and they provide a link back to the past. Treat them with respect.
