What's inside the stomach of a Great White? Find out live at Auckland Museum! The Museum and Department of Conservation invite you to witness a rare public necropsy, or animal autopsy, of a 3 metre long Great White Shark.
This year Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Diamond Jubilee marking 60 years of her reign. The festivities get underway in June, and Auckland Museum is paying tribute with a series of special events.
This year's Matariki programme is inspired by our Taumata's vision for the Museum: Whakamana, nga taonga tuku iho, hei whakataki i nga ra ki muri. Honouring the past, Embracing the present, Guiding our future.
