Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum is more than just an iconic landmark in our city; it is a place to discover Auckland – past, present and future – ask questions and to stimulate debate about our city and its evolving identity.
Auckland Museum is Auckland’s place of gathering, welcome and orientation, where we share knowledge of our taonga (treasures) and explore the many stories of Tāmaki.
As a kaitiaki (guardians), we are responsible for more than 4.5 million treasures within our walls, the DNA of Auckland. And as Auckland’s War Memorial, we are a place for people to reflect and remember.
This review looks at each of our priorities in more detail through the eyes of our stakeholders, our partners and the communities we work with and shares some of the highlights that have made up our year of achievements in 2019.
