In the latest move to offer our members the finest amenities, the Museum has converted the old Council Room into a state-of-the-art Members’ Lounge, sumptuously fitted out with leather lounge suites, coffee tables, a computer and larger tables.
The adjoining rooms provide tea and coffee making facilities in a brand new kitchen. There are also private toilets not available to the general public.
Internet facilities are installed in the Lounge and an ample supply of magazines and other publications are available for browsing.
The lounge is accessible by swipe card and is free of charge for members. Please note that the Members’ Lounge is an adults only space and we ask that children 13 years and over are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The Lounge has seen many changes in its nearly eighty years of existence, from housing the Auckland Museum and Institute Council with luminaries like Sir John Logan Campbell presiding; to in later years providing curatorial rooms for Social History and Registration.
This is a fine addition to Auckland Museum’s rapidly increasing catalogue of reasons for becoming a member of New Zealand’s finest and oldest Museum. It will be used and loved by generations of members to come.
