As part of the Auckland Heritage Festival, we are opening up the Museum's South Crescent rooftop for special heritage tours. Take advantage of this rare chance to learn more about one of the city’s most beloved heritage buildings and our ongoing role as kaitiaki (guardians), working to restore and preserve its iconic features for the future.
View our recent heritage restoration work, see how the building has developed over time, and stop by our field of solar panels - usually hidden from view below the roof parapet. You will also enjoy incredible panoramic views of the Waitematā Harbour from the Museum’s rooftop.
Each session is 45 minutes long and suitable for adults and children aged 8 and over. Sessions are limited to 15 people; book now to secure your place.
The tour includes stairs and isn't suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. A moderate fitness level is required. Flat, enclosed shoes must be worn. All bags must be checked into lockers, with the exception of handbags which are secured with a shoulder strap.
This is an outdoor event so bringing wet weather gear is advised. Please note umbrellas are not permitted on the Museum roof.
Inclement weather cancellation:
In the case of severe weather, heavy rain or strong winds, the event will be cancelled and refunds will be provided. We will notify all ticket holders by 9.30am of cancellation and update the Auckland Museum website.
