The Museum in Auckland is also known as the Auckland War Memorial Museum and is the first Museum in Auckland. It houses the world largest collection of Maori ancestral treasures which is essentially its war artefacts and a war canoe that could accommodate 100 soldiers. Its architectural style is neoclassical and it sports a copper and glass dome. An important and fascinating part of the museum is its ‘volcano eruption room’ that demonstrates to you how it would look like if one of Auckland’s Volcanic fields erupted. Another fascinating demonstration is its authentic pre war preparation dance, called the Haka, and it’s totally worth it.

Remember that the Museum has another role to play of a war memorial so it’s a very important landmark of Auckland as it does showcase a lot of military display. Hour long tours are conducted at the museum daily and you can jump that wagon at 10.45 am, 12.45 pm and 2.15 pm in which you may also include the cultural performance. Also ask for the existing exhibitions and other cultural events that are usually conducted here.

Timings: The museum is open from Monday to Sunday 10:00 to 17:00 hours daily.

Tickets: Entry to the museum is 25 NZD per person and 10 NZD for a child. The cultural performance is 25 dollars per person.

Location: The Auckland Domain, Parnell, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
