Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Auckland Region / Auckland / New Zealand Maritime Museum
With exhibits that span from the first Polynesian explorers to today's seafaring heroes, New Zealand Maritime Museum provides an in-depth look into the country's rich nautical history. You can take a free guided tour or study the artifacts, timelines, photos, and information boards at your own pace. In addition to the reconstructed and preserved ships found inside the museum, you'll notice some interesting vessels--including the Rapaki, a 1926 floating steam crane--sitting in the harbor outside. For a small extra fee, you can enjoy a one-hour voyage on board the Ted Ashby, a reproduction of a ketch-rigged stow. If you need to fuel up before or after your visit, head to one of the many nearby waterfront eateries. PutNew Zealand Maritime Museum into our Auckland travel planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Was a good afternoon filled in at a I formative museum. The interactive displays add to the experience. It is suited for all ages. I recommend you spend some time there.

This is a wonderful place to learn about the Sea Creatures in New Zealand. I have went on a field trip to this place 2 years ago. Please be careful of the doors because some of them are Alarmed so when you open them an Alarm will Go. My my Triggered it on the field trip. Enjoy the benefits of this wonderful place
An excellent museum. Maori and settlers history. Plus modern sailing challenge boats. Loved it here. Much larger than we imagined
