The NZ National Maritime Museum is situated at the heart of Auckland's downtown waterfront area.

Opened to the public in August 1993 and proclaimed as a "new generation" museum with no precedent in New Zealand, the New Zealand National Maritime Museum is truly a very different kind of cultural institution and tourist attraction.

14 Main Exhibition Galleries showcasing New Zealand's maritime history.
Heritage vessels (steam and sail), for inspection and cruises.
A varied and interesting education programme, both on and off the water, including 'sleepovers'.
Visiting vessels in the museum's marina.
The Edmiston Gallery - maritime art treasures.
Changing exhibitions - both visiting exhibitions and from our own collection.
Opportunities for volunteers with an interest in people and/or things maritime.
Line7 America's Cup store, café & Visitor Information Centre on-site.
Sail with Pride of Auckland Cruises.
An active 'Friends' membership programme.
Research and library facilities.
A unique conference and functions centre, 'The Maritime Room' with unsurpassed sea views.

And lots more!
