MAPPING THE MUSEUMS OF AUCKLAND

Auckland Art Gallery, the Auckland Museum, 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.

NEW WAYS TO CONNECT WITH COLLECTIONS

Museums and galleries around the world are investing in the digitisation of their collections to ensure the public has greater access than ever before.

So even if you can’t step inside one of the Museums of Auckland today, you can still access hundreds – or even hundreds of thousands – of their collection items from your nearest device.

VOYAGE AND DISCOVERY

Stories of migration and incredible voyages are integral to Aotearoa New Zealand’s identity.

The Museums of Auckland collections explore those early journeys and reveal the country’s Pacific origins and how they have shaped New Zealand culture and traditions and strong ties to the sea and land.
