Hi everyone, after being in lockdown we stayed closed in order to undergo a renovation and refresh. We now have whole new exhibitions about the clay industry in New Lynn and Crown Lynn. Come and visit! We are open Tuesday to Friday 10-4 and Saturday 10-3.
Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.
The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.
The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.
Please put NFP if you do not want your comments used by Stuff.

Drivers could be taxed $3.50 to enter the CBD during peak hour.
The congestion charge of up to $3.50 could be implemented within three years under a proposal unveiled by officials.
It is hoped a congestion charge would spur people to leave their cars behind but there are concerns those who are less well off could feel the pinch.
