An Amazing trip To Sculptureum.
Jul 2021 • Family
As Grandparents taking our 9 year old grandson to visit the Sculptureum we were amazed and excited about what we saw both indoors and in the outside gardens. The gardens and sculptures were so special. The art galleries delighted young and old. The colourful birds, shetland ponies, rabbits and tortoise were fun to see and touch. Lunch was great, especially the children's menu. Maybe more choices at a lower cost in the adults menu would be great when another visit is planned. Our grandson said, "when are we coming back to visit again?"

Great family day out
Jul 2021 • Family
It was a great day, the kids really enjoyed it, even though they are young and there is a lot of walking. Didn't love the cafe prices, but they'd be pretty normal for most people....just not it you have four young kids! We will recommend this place to everyone. Can be done in most weather, but is definitely more enjoyable in sunny, warm conditions.

Good mixture of contemporary and traditional sculpture
Jul 2021 • Family
We really enjoyed the contemporary sculptures and the art galleries. Some awesome artworks on display. We weren't so keen on the more traditional sculptures as we found the contemporary works more exciting. Good to see such a range! I loved the kinetic sculptures particularly and the fantastic work from Germany in the gardens. A fun day out!

Worthwhile visit
Jul 2021
We agreed that the visit was well worthwhile. Quite a few thought provoking quotes as well as the sculptures. The drift wood whale and elephants were outstanding and the pink garden would delight children and adults alike. We were there for a couple of hours.

THE best gallery in New Zealand.
Jul 2021 • Family
Took the chance of going for the school holidays. It exceeded my expectations. Start in the gardens and move into the galleries. There is so much to see. Had my 10 year old with me and my 60+ mum and both enjoyed it immensely. Planning to go back as will take more time to have a look (10 year old was in an impatient mood). It is very well curated and the sculptures were amazing. Mum had a mulled wine before we left. It was good but not sieved as expected. The surprise was they had a Matisse lithograph and a Picasso lithograph in the galleries. Would be really nice to go in the Spring.
