"Excellent Maori area, but..." Auckland Museum and Domain Tip by BurgerQueen
Auckland Museum and Domain, Auckland: 43 reviews and 95 photos
You cannot miss a visit to the Auckland museum while in Auckland.
Getting there is quite simple, catch a Link bus (1.60 NZ$) and the driver will drop you off just in front of the museum.
The entrance to the museum is free, but donations are welcome.
The Maori area is very rich in Maori carvings, and also displays some exemples of Maori buildings and ships. In this area you can also attend a Maori Cultural performance for 25NZ$ per person which I recommend. Be sure to book your place at the admission counter in time, there are only 3 performances per day, and they are often fully booked.
The rest of the museum was not very interesting from my point of view. I would suggest a visit to the other areas to people with young kids, I got the impression that the museum has been conceived for that age range ("antiques" are from the 1980s!!!)
The museum is located in the Parnell area, which is also deserves a visit.
Address: Auckland Domain, Parnell, Auckland.
