The End of the Wharf & Summer Sounds

Come enjoy our great new outdoor space "The End of the Wharf" which has a summer garden, places to sit and relax as well as outdoor activities for the kids. We worked with Tat Upcycle to create comfortable wooden upcycled furniture which reflects our maritime history and surroundings. Coffee and icecream are available on weekends from our Johnny Wray's coffee cart.

From Saturday January 21st until Sunday 12th March there will be live music from 11.30am - 2pm each Saturday and Sunday (except Auckland Anniversary weekend January 28th and 29th).

It's free with your Maritime Museum entry ticket and a wonderful place to enjoy stunning harbour views during your visit.
