Stage your special event at the Gallery and enjoy one of the most beautiful settings in the city. From the modern, light-filled North Atrium to the elegant Lower Grey Gallery, sophisticated Mackelvie Gallery and sun-lit East Terrace, the building blends classic Victorian style with 21st-century architecture.

Welcome your guests through majestic kauri columns that stretch high above the city streets. Invite them into the delicate surrounds of the Lower Grey Gallery or, perhaps, the luxuriant tones of the Mackelvie Gallery. Serve drinks and canapés as you watch the sun set from the East Terrace or head to the crisp interior of the North Atrium for dinner, speeches and dancing.

Whether a product launch, awards ceremony, wedding or gala dinner, you’ll find we offer extraordinary settings for special occasions.
