Mapping the Museums of Auckland
Exploring extraordinary collections surrounded by the city’s most stunning parks and waterfront.
Auckland Art Gallery, the Auckland Museum, New Zealand Maritime Museum, MOTAT and Stardome share the role of kaitiaki or guardian for hundreds of thousands of collection items, heritage treasures and artworks that contribute to a culturally rich and creative Auckland.
But the journey of discovery doesn’t stop inside these Auckland museums and galleries – these organisations that house New Zealand’s precious collections are themselves located in some of Auckland’s most stunning locations, each with their own rich history.
This blog highlights a few of the taonga (treasures) found inside and outside the Museums of Auckland.
