NileGuide Expert tip:
After your visit to the gallery, don't miss a walk in Albert Park which is right behind the main building. It's a steep hill but it's worth it.
The gallery is housed in historical buildings on two sides of the road. It contains a sizeable collection of European, New Zealand and Pacific art including a good amount of Maori art and portraiture. The gallery has historical and modern works and always has some sort of special exhibition on details of which can be found on the website. There is also a nice cafe.
Currently only part of the gallery is open as the bigger historical building is undergoing refurbishment. When facing the main building, right behind you you'll see a red building. Head a little to the right of it and you'll see the entrance which look like the above photo.
