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. Put New Zealand Maritime Museum into our Auckland travel planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

New Zealand Maritime Museum Reviews
ハーバーの一画にある海洋博物館。 あまり目立たず、初日は素通りしてしまいましたが 時間が空いたので訪問。 他の方も書かれていますが、船に関する展示が多かった様に思います。日曜の昼に訪問しましたが、それほど混んでもおりませんでした。 more »The Maritime Museum is located in a corner of the harbour. It was not very conspicuous, and I passed through the first day, but I visited because time was free. Other people have written, but I think that there were many exhibits about the ship. I visited here on Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't too crowded.
We only visited because there was an art exhibition on, but all 4 of us spent several hours enjoying the museum. I wish we'd had more time, I'd love to go back and sail on one of the old boats. more »
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
