Foster art and ideas – make a difference.   

Membership Plus is a wonderfully easy way to support the Gallery's vision to foster art and ideas. This support enriches and engages the community as well as connecting like-minded patrons.

To thank you for your support, you receive special recognition. You enjoy all the benefits of membership plus invitations to exhibition openings and an annual gift from one of our partners.

Benefits for one Membership Plus cardholder include:

  • Two complimentary signature cocktails at Auckland's landmark restaurant, Onslow.*
  • Invitations to (at least) two Auckland Art Gallery exhibition openings per year. Our exhibition openings take place after-hours and are by invitation only. Usually, an invitation admits two; your e-invite will have all the details.

All the existing benefits of membership including: 

  • Free unlimited entry to all exhibitions
  • Access to the Members Lounge 
  • Three issues per year of our Gallery magazine, Art Toi
  • Members-only viewings and exclusive events 
  • 10% discount at our café and shop  



Subscribe to Membership Plus for an annual contribution of $290. Of this fee, $200 will go towards our international exhibition fund, helping us bring world-class art and artists to Aotearoa New Zealand.

For only $30, you can add a guest pass, enabling you to bring someone along every time you visit us. Both of you will enjoy the benefits of being a Member, and you can bring someone different every time.

Thank you for considering supporting us by joining Membership Plus.

Introducing Onslow

Restaurant Onslow is the culmination of Josh Emett’s culinary journey from London to New York and back to Aotearoa. Onslow is a landmark Auckland address steeped in history within walking distance of the Gallery – with a stellar art collection of their own. On offer is a sophisticated yet relaxed restaurant that celebrates the very best ingredients from New Zealand farmers and producers. The menu is dedicated to quality and provenance–refined but not fine-dining, where a la carte and table d’hôte options return a celebration of dining enjoyment, course by course. 

Thank you to Helen and Josh Emett for their support of Membership Plus and Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
