Auckland War Memorial Museum

The Auckland War Memorial Museum is one of New Zealands' most important national museums and war memorials. Although the museum itself dates from at least the 1860s, the present heritage building in the Auckland Domain was opened in 1929, and was extended in the 1960s, and again in 2004. The museum houses the largest collection of Maori and Pacific Island artefacts and treasures in New Zealand, and also serves as a memorial to the Aucklanders who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars.
