The Maritime Room

Our flagship space is the Maritime Room, a purpose built event facility, suitable for groups large or small thanks to separate entertainment areas, integrated AV and wrap around decks. 

Able to be used in multiple formats, the main room space can be divided to create the right dimensions for your event.

Galleries and charter vessels

The Maritime Room has available a number of galleries and charter vessels available for event use by appointment.

Blue Water-Black Magic

This gallery is the iconic and award winning tribute to NZ's greatest sailing hero - Sir Peter Blake. The room features an awe inspiring centrepiece of the Americas Cup winning yacht NZL32, and a variety of exhibitions that are rich in objects, stories, interactivity, audio visual content and colour. 

The Edmiston Gallery

This space serves as an intimate location within the museum, and is ideally used as a pre-dinner cocktail location, a breakout room for conference events, or private dinner setting.
