Celebrating 90 years

The Team from Auckland Museum

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?

In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.

The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.

We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
