Excellent place to go for knowledge about Nz heritage and kiwi life in the past. Amazing place been there so many times and will continue to go there again! Be in for long walks if you're planning to go there ;)
Free entry for Aucklanders. Excellent museum with a huge number of collections or artifacts, with emphasis on NZ Maori and Pacific cultures. They also have dinosaur fossils! They also have temporary collections and host events in the newer section at the back. Worth a visit if you live here, not just for overseas travellers.
