The Auckland War Memorial Museum is a stunning example of colonial architecture, with Greco-Roman grandeur and expansive views across Waitemata Harbour to Rangitoto Island. Located in Auckland’s oldest park, the site stakes claim to some of the city’s best views. But it’s what’s on the inside that counts: the world’s finest collection of Maori and Pacific artifacts and taonga (treasure), as well as Maori cultural performances and a changing array of exhibitions. While here, stroll to the Wintergardens, in the grounds of the Domain. Opened in 1913, you’ll find a fascinating collection of tropical and temperate plants in the Victorian-style glasshouses.
