More properly Auckland War Memorial Museum. The museum has a superb collection of Maori and Pacific Island objects, as well as being a museum of wars New Zealand has been involved in, a natural history and fine arts museum.
Recently redeveloped on site it exemplifies fine architecture and the traditional object oriented strengths of museums. Live Maori cultural performances are a feature.
The Records of the Museum have been a major outlet for scholarly publications on archaeology and ethnology for Auckland, New Zealand and the Pacific, particularly on the Auckland region and the collections of the Museum. It is a repository for excavated material from archaeological sites.
