Auckland Museum is a charity. The support the Museum receives through donations, partnerships, gifts in wills, and funding from trusts and foundations ensures it is a place of curiosity, innovation, learning and research. Your support will help the Museum continue to enrich lives and inspire discoveries of future generations. 



The Museum’s capital fundraising campaign, ARE YOU IN?, seeks support for Future Museum Stage 1. Part of a long term programme to create a world class Museum, Future Museum Stage 1 will see the current building optimised and will set a critical foundation for future investment.
