“Under the Dome at the Auckland War Memorial Museum was the perfect space for our conference dinner. Having the opportunity to enter through the main entrance and get photos in front of the exhibit was an added bonus. The space upstairs works well for various types of events and the view speaks for itself. Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the team were fantastic to deal with. I look forward to being able to bring another event back to the venue”

“We celebrated Hawkins 75th anniversary at the Museum Atrium. What a splendid venue for a cocktail function with over 300 guests. Unfortunately, the event was rescheduled four times due to Covid, but it was worth the wait. Working with the Museum was irreproachable; staging, light, catering, and music made the evening magic. We received excellent feedback from our guests. Thank you to the team and for making the Museum alive at night.”

Darel & Alya Wedding

"We held a wedding for our Son Darel (groom) and his wife Alya (bride) at the Museum Event Centre, it was a fabulous venue and the staff that we dealt with provided excellent service. We could not have asked for anything more on the night of the wedding with the lighting, decoration and staging – it was great. It was a beautiful wedding night and an event that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thanks”
