Our mission is Tui tui hono tangata, whenua me te moana - Connecting through sharing stories of people, lands and seas. Our 280 staff and 300 volunteers deliver our mission everyday by sharing engaging content through our galleries, exhibitions, events and education programmes and creating new knowledge by undertaking research related to our collection items.

We are Auckland's home of commemoration as well as the country’s oldest research institution, a major tourist destination and event venue. Being such a multifaceted organisation means that we offer a huge range of roles from Visitor Hosts, Curators, Collection Managers, Learning Specialists and Content Interpreters to Retail Assistants, Tourism and Event Managers. 

Our vision is He Oranga Tangata ka ao - Enriching lives: Inspiring discoveries. That's what excites and motivates us here at the Museum.

Directorates and departments  

The Museum is structured around six directorates. Our Development team currently reports directly to our Chief Executive. They are tasked with developing relationships with philanthropic donors, applying for grants and funding and with the development of our membership programme.
