North Island's West Coast Sights

Sarjeant Gallery

Updated 02/18/2014

Fodor's Review

On a small hill overlooking the town is one of New Zealand's finest art galleries and most handsome heritage buildings, renowned for its domed neoclassical architecture, natural lighting, and magnificent display spaces. The gallery is highly regarded for the quality of its collection and regularly changing exhibits of local, national, and international artists. With 6,000 works of art in its care, including 19th- and 20th-century international and New Zealand art, photography, and a dynamic collection of contemporary New Zealand art to draw from, the gallery assures a stimulating art experience. The shop stocks high-quality glasswork and jewelry, much of it crafted by local artists.
