Our venue is a Museum and War Memorial with striking neoclassical architecture and majestic columns. For your engagement or wedding, Auckland Museum is the elegant iconic backdrop to your special day.

Our Grand Foyer, available in the evening, is a fabulous ceremony and reception space, with room for up to 300 standing or 150 seated guests.
