Maps & Tours

Visitor Map

The Maritime Museum's seven galleries are presented over two levels, with balconies all the way through so you can get good views of the boats on display. Each gallery tells its own story of New Zealand’s maritime history and pioneering spirit, and how it has contributed to our identity today.
