Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki

Founded in 1888, the Auckland Art Gallery is the art gallery to visit when in town. It's here you can learn more about local art and culture through works by artists like Gottfried Lindauer. There are also permanent pieces by international artists like Phelan Gibb and Barbara Hepworth. If you're feeling peckish, take to the cafe or pick up an artful souvenir at the shop on your way out.
