Supporting our store supports your Museum
Every purchase you make helps Auckland Museum look after our treasures and bring history to life.
The items you'll find in our store have been carefully selected to link with our collection, support the Museum's role as a war memorial and reflect New Zealand's special culture. Some are educational, some are beautiful and others are just plain fun.
Why do we need a store to raise funds?
Our funding comes from Auckland ratepayers, sponsors, donors and our own revenue-generating activities - like this online store. That means every purchase you make helps the Museum to take care of precious taonga, carry out conservation work, make great exhibitions, deliver educational programmes - in our galleries and out in the community, support important research - and continue to be a world-class museum and war memorial.
Shop at our onsite store
We also have an onsite store located just off the Grand Foyer. It's open daily from 10am to 5pm (except Christmas Day).
It carries a larger, more diverse range of products including pounamu (greenstone) jewellery and art and sculpture by New Zealand artists. We have traditional Māori instruments made by leading carvers, hand made art glass and ceramic works by top local potters.
