Auckland is a vibrant, arty city home to a number of fascinating galleries that showcase Māori, New Zealand and international art.
The Auckland Art Gallery(opens in new window) is a real must-see if you are visiting Auckland. Home to the world's largest permanent collection of New Zealand art, this gallery houses more than 15,000 pieces and is a great place to go to experience Māori, Pacific and New Zealand artwork. The Auckland Museum also showcases stunning cultural artwork in one of New Zealand's most outstanding historical buildings.
