    Auckland Art Gallery

    The Auckland Art Gallery is Auckland's most popular public gallery. It has an extensive collection of national and international art. It also hosts travelling international exhibitions.

    The gallery was established in 1888 as the first permanent art gallery in New Zealand. The New Gallery, across the road from the main gallery, was established in 1995 and shows contemporary art.

    You'll find works of many New Zealand and Pacific artists, as well as European material from the Middle Ages up to today.

    The Gow Lansford Gallery is right opposite the Auckland Art Gallery and exhibits both contemporary New Zealand paintings and sculpture as well as works by international artists. There are monthly exhibitions which form an important part of the gallery activities.

    The Gallery first opened in 1888 and is just up from Queen Street and is supposed to contain the largest and most comprehensive collection of New Zealand and international art in the country. There is a rotation of displays both of its own collections which range from the 14th century to the present as well as showing international exhibits from time to time. There is also a research library, café and shop. The building is a beautiful Victorian / French Chateau style. There are free guided tours which begin at 2pm daily.

    Gallery hours : 10am-5pm daily.

    I love arts, so I usually take an opportunity to visit the art gallery when traveling.
    Auckland Art Gallery has an interesting collection of paintings and other kind of arts. I like the paintings/photos of the Maori leaders. When I went to the museum, I also saw an interesting exhibition of fashion arts (old style clothes).

    You can purchase some postcards and posters from the gallery store.

    The Gallery has New Zealand's largest collection of art of both national and international status which are housed within two buildings. There are even free tours at 2pm if yo have the time. Otherwise just stroll and relax surrounding by some beautiful paintings.

    The main art gallery was closed for renovation during my visit but the modern annex next door was open. Besides its art collection, the architecture of this building is part of the draw.
