    Auckland MuseumAuckland Museum Auckland, New Zealand
    This outstanding museum is also called the Auckland War Memorial Museum and is one of the most significant museums and war memorials in the nation, focusing on the history of New Zealand, and Auckland, as well as natural history and military history. It is housed in one of the city's most iconic structures, built in the neoclassical style and resting on top of a grassed plinth or dormant volcano, in a huge park called Auckland Domain. The museum was started in 1852, as a farm workers' cottage, that now houses Auckland University and the first exhibit was for specimens of wool that welcomed 708 visitors. As the years passed, the museum would see a decline in interest, until 1869, when it was transferred to the care of the Auckland Institute, a learned society that had begun two years prior. One of the most prominent visitors during the 1890s would be the French artist, Paul Gauguin, that would sketch numerous Maori objects that would eventually be incorporated into his Tahitian period paintings. The museum contains a big collection of Maori and Pacific Island relics and treasures, that included three buildings that included the Hotunui, which was a huge carved meeting house constructed in 1878 at Thames and Te Toki a Tapiri, that was a war canoe from the year 1830 and called a waka taua. It also houses a magnificent photographic collection of 1.2 million images, as well as storing and showcasing 1.5 million natural history specimens that have been acquired in the fields of geology, marine biology, botany, land vertebrates and entomology.
