Those who prefer to soak in culture after hours will be pleased to hear that Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira is staying open late every Tuesday evening until 8.30pm.

Late-night events are nothing new for the Museum; it regularly presents panel talks, intimate concerts and relaxed social gatherings for singles. During the Twilight Tuesdays evenings visitors are invited to take in the relaxed atmosphere and wander through the beautifully-lit galleries.

The new Te Ao Mārama South Atrium is also open for exploration. Auckland Museum commissioned several new artworks for the foyer — all of them by Māori and Pacific artists. Architect Noel Lane's huge timber centrepiece, Talitali 'Au Moana, is now fully exposed. The 'Tanoa' serves as an impression of a Fijian kava bowl and features its own looping animated audio-visual experience.

And why not make a meal of it by visiting the new sit-down bistro? The Kiwiana-inspired menu at Tuitui Museum Bistro & Café includes the likes of fish and chips, slow roast lamb, duck fat skins with Kiwi dip, corned beef and kumara croquettes and woodfired pizzas.
