We ate lunch at the foot of the Sky Tower, Auckland’s answer to the Seattle Space Needle. Today scattered showers came and went, and we opted for a visit to the nearby Auckland Art Gallery, saving the top of the Tower for a sunny day. The Gallery holds a mixture of New Zealand artists, European art and contemporary exhibitions. It is tiny in comparison to European and US museums we have visited. The building was recently redeveloped and has received 17 architectural and 6 design-related awards.
