These include major holdings of New Zealand historic, modern and contemporary art, and outstanding works by Maori and Pacific Island artists, as well as European painting, sculpture and print collections ranging in date from 1376 to the present day.
Free tours are available every day at 2.00pm. Taken by Gallery Docents these interactive 45 minute tours bring works of art alive for participants. Organised tours for groups are available by arrangement.
