Auckland Museum

Auckland

Whether you're hosting a formal dinner party, a conference or seminar, or planning your dream wedding, you'll find the venue to suit your event in one of Auckland's most iconic buildings.



The history of New Zealand is at your fingertips with Auckland Museum. An elegant space located just outside of Auckland CBD in the lush grounds of the Domain, Auckland Museum is a war memorial that also holds one of New Zealand's top three heritage libraries. With striking neoclassical architecture and majestic columns, we serve as one of Auckland’s most beloved venues for hire. From dinner parties to seminars and everything in between, Auckland Museum has a space to match your function’s needs. There are 6 options to choose from: the Auditorium, Champagne Mezzanine, Event Centre, Grand Foyer, Origins Gallery, and South Atrium. Each of these choices offers unique and gorgeous spaces for your next Auckland event. The South Atrium, currently undergoing an exciting makeover, will soon have more information about its opening date and capacity; the Champagne Mezzanine is ideal for a debonair cocktail party; the Event Centre is more expansive, settled under the copper dome of the museum and making for a perfect spot for conferences and gala dinners; the Grand Foyer, originally built in 1929, offers beauty in spades, taking particular advantage of the museum’s neo-classic design; and the Origins Gallery offers a venue entirely unique to us, allowing your guests to sip on wine with dinosaurs. The wonders of Auckland Museum don’t end there. In addition to our host of magnificent spaces, we also offer private after-hours gallery experiences for you and your guests. You can dazzle everyone with a private stroll through the museum, taking in our exclusive exhibits and collections. There's also the chance to book exclusive Maori Cultural Performances and to visit The Museum Store for personalised gifts. With Auckland Museum, you are promised a venue like none other for a night you’ll never forget. ○ Please note that whilst on-site paid parking is available at Auckland Museum, there are also a number of free timed spots in the Domain.
