Temporary Closure - Earthquake Strengthening Work

Our 110 year old Carnegie Building is undergoing some earthquake strengthening, so we have had to vacate the two front galleries, foyer, reception and office areas. While this work will involve a certain amount of interior renovation, the majority of the strengthening work will be focused on the building’s entrance, parapet, roof and exterior west-facing wall. After about three months we will re-open in a refreshed heritage building that will be 100%NBS.  While the John Money Wing and Ralph Hotere Gallery don’t require any structural work, we are using this opportunity to refresh the displays, walls and lighting systems. 

Follow progress on this page and on the Gallery's Facebook page.
