Auckland City Sights & Museum


Take in the city sights to explore the Maori and Polynesian culture at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Travel through Parnell Village, over the Auckland Harbour Bridge, and to one of the city’s vantage points for a photo stop before going to the museum. This imposing neo-classical museum is located in the Auckland Domain, an area of scenic parklands boasting manicured lawns, lush gardens, ponds, and trees. The museum houses the world’s largest collection of Maori and Polynesian artefacts, including a huge 82 foot Maori canoe from the trunk of the mighty totara tree. You will have time to view the excellent displays, exhibits, and memorabilia from New Zealand’s participation in the two World Wars. Highlights of this era include an extremely rare and authentic Japanese Zero and a British Spitfire plane.
