Let the Auckland Art Gallery transform your event into a masterpiece. The beautifully elegant Art Gallery has a number of spaces available to host your event.

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, has a very unusual venue offering. The gallery is home to over 15,000 of New Zealand’s most highly regarded works of art from national and international artists. Conveniently located in the heart of the city, your guests will be impressed with this iconic gem.

The Auckland Art Gallery welcomes all guests with majestic kauri columns leading to sophisticated event spaces. The seven spaces on offer will create a stunning backdrop for any event. Whether it’s a product launch, awards ceremony, wedding or gala dinner, the Art Gallery is versatile to meet your event needs. 

Your event will have stand-out presence in the North Atrium space. This remarkable space, with expansive windows stretching three storeys to a kauri canopy, is flexible for hosting banquets, theatre-style or a cocktail reception. 

If you require indoor-outdoor flow for your event, the East Terrace provides guests with a beautiful rooftop space overlooking Albert Park, perfect for early evening cocktails.

Victorian style blends with 21st Century architecture in this historical venue. The main gallery sits in a New Zealand Historic Places Trust category one building which was first opened in 1887. A multi-million dollar restoration and expansion project was completed in 2011 and has transformed the gallery into one of Auckland’s most desirable venues.
