Donate, Sponsorship & Support
Governed by a Trust Board created under an act of parliament in 1996, the Museum receives no funding from central Government. It is funded by Auckland ratepayers and from revenue generated by the Museum itself.
The Museum also receives generous support from corporate sponsors, charitable trusts and private individuals:
The Auckland Museum has been developed and shaped over the course of its life by the generosity of individuals and families. You can make a difference by supporting the Museums efforts to care for and protect its treasures so they can be enjoyed by generations to come.
The continued support of our corporate sponsors has helped Auckland Museum to become one of the leading institutions of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. It remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in New Zealand and has become a much loved destination for the Auckland population, young and old alike.
Auckland Museum is extremely grateful for the support it receives from national and international Charitable Trusts and Foundations. These contributions enable the Museum to realise its ambitious programme of development and ensure it is able to offer the many activities which are central to its role as one of the leading Museums in the world.
