About the Museum
With multiple exhibition spaces spreading across four levels of its award-winning ‘World Building of the Year’, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is the largest and most inspiring visual arts experience in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Its collection of more than 16,000 artworks includes major holdings of New Zealand historic, modern and contemporary art. These artworks plot a visual history of New Zealand from the very first contact between Māori and European explorers in the 1600s. Outstanding works by Māori and Pacific Island artists are a powerful feature of the Gallery’s holdings, and the international painting, sculpture and print collections connect it with the world beyond the Pacific. Taken together, Auckland Art Gallery’s holdings are widely considered to comprise New Zealand’s pre-eminent public art collection.
