Built way back in 1888, the Auckland art gallery gives you a chance to witness the historical heritage of its region through its art. Tio Ta Maki is its official name and it hosts more than 15000 pieces of national and international art beginning with the colonial times and the collections of the local municipality till the later more contemporary works of art. With its frequently hosted travelling exhibitions and art workshops, this is a cultural landmark in the city and has relics that should not be missed. The art gallery also has a newly opened auditorium where travel documentaries can be viewed.

Earlier the Gallery was dominated by European paintings of the 19th century but has in the years accommodated a variety of styles from different parts of the world. The intent of the gallery is more than the showcase of art- it looks to help people think in creative ways and expand their horizons.
