Auckland Museum protects and cares for an outstanding and significant collection of Māori treasures (taonga).
The Museum has two dedicated Māori galleries along with a yearly Matariki exhibition. Cultural performances and tours can be enjoyed every day.
A recent estimate of taonga overseas in museum collections starts at 16,000. These treasures primarily date to pre-1900, and are rich and diverse, yet knowledge about them remains elusive.Read more
