Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is New Zealand’s largest and most inspiring visual arts experience.

Enter between majestic kauri columns to explore four floors of exhibitions, many centuries of art and one of Auckland's most iconic buildings. Visit us and discover some of the best in New Zealand and international art right in the heart of Auckland city.

Please note:
Our external kauri canopy and columns are undergoing essential cleaning and re-oiling treatment from Mon 2 Sep – late Oct. The Gallery, including its shop and Mojo café, will be open as usual over this time. Members of the public can still enter through the Gallery’s front entrance, and gain access to our Mojo café and Albert Park via a public staircase along Kitchener Street. Access to work areas will be restricted.

Qualmark is New Zealand tourism’s official quality assurance organisation, providing a trusted guide to quality travel experience. In November 2018 Auckland Art Gallery was awarded a Gold Qualmark rating which recognises our exceptional customer experiences and integral sustainable practices.

Open daily from 10am–5pm, except Christmas day.

We recommend approximately an hour visit for a thorough experience at the Gallery. Visitors will be asked to begin to make their way back to the entry from 4.45pm to collect bags with the building closing at 5pm.
