Every year, museums and galleries around the world celebrate International Museum Day.

This year the theme is 'Museums and memory' - a theme which perfectly coincides with our 'If These Walls Could Talk' series on this blog. You can read all the entries in the series here.

If you have memories of the Auckland Art Gallery, we'd love to hear from you so we can expand the series to include stories from everyone in the community. Drop us a line in the comments below, or contact us via the website.

Find out about how other New Zealand museums are celebrating International Museum Day on the Museums Aotearoa website, and get a global view here.
