Your friends and family must accompany you to be able to share in your privilege.
As a Museum Member, you will be invited to attend our regular Member-only events. From expert and curatorial talks, to behind the scenes tours and previews of special exhibitions before they open to the public - you’ll be able to see and experience even more of what you love at your Museum.

A key benefit of Membership with Auckland Museum is unlimited, free entry to paid exhibitions, including our latest international exhibition Secrets of Stonehenge.
Secrets of Stonehenge highlights more than 300 ancient artefacts and the latest cutting-edge scientific research to answer questions about this iconic, mysterious World Heritage Site.
Share the experience by adding a Friends & Whānau pass when you sign up, so you can always bring someone along to the exhibition with you.
Arriving in mid-2022, the Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes exhibition from the British Museum’s world-renowned collection from the Ancient Greek world is the largest selection of ancient artefacts ever loaned by the British Museum to New Zealand.
It will showcase a wide range of treasures and stories and includes a selection of iconic sculptures from the ‘Mausoleum at Halikarnassos’, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World.
Just like for Secrets of Stonehenge, you can share the experience by adding a Friends & Whānau pass when you sign up.
As a Museum Member, you won’t just save when visiting our paid exhibitions for free. You'll also save 10% on food and beverages at Tuitui Museum Bistro & Café and 1929 Espresso Bar, and receive 10% off at the Museum Store.
