An impressive arts scene awaits you in New Zealand. Auckland’s official art gallery, Toi o Tāmaki boasts an extensive collection of Pacific, Maori and European pieces in the country’s largest gallery. Also on the North Island is the Auckland Museum. Housed in one of New Zealand’s finest Heritage buildings, it’s home to the most significant collection of Pacific and Maori treasures in the southern hemisphere. Over three floors, this museum tells the story of New Zealand’s place in the Pacific, its natural history and its role in military conflicts including WWI and WWII. Further south in Dunedin, you will find an extensive European collection at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, while Wellington specialises in contemporary art at the Pataka Gallery, and architecture and design at the City Gallery Wellington.
