New Zealand Maritime Museum
Cnr Quay and Hobson Streets, Viaduct Harbour 1010
New Zealand Maritime Museum Hui Te Ananui a Tangaroa is the place where stories of people and the sea are preserved, shared and explored with our visitors.
Aotearoa is one of the most maritime nations in the world and the story of every one of us is affected by the sea, whether through immigration, trade, design, innovation or leisure. The museum is a hub for all of these stories; we express them in our galleries and through our programme of events, special exhibitions, heritage sailings and more.
The museum houses one of the nation’s most important heritage collections, covering the breadth of our relationship with te moana; from the Great Pacific Migration a thousand years ago to the cutting edge of technology and design used in America’s Cup and modern yachting. Whether you’re a lifelong yachtie or someone who has never before set foot on a boat, you’ll find relevance and personal connections to the stories and taonga of the New Zealand Maritime Museum.
Situated in Auckland’s vibrant Viaduct Basin on the Waitematā Harbour, the Museum is open every day of the year except for Christmas Day.
