The Mackelvie Gallery will be temporarily closed until May 2024. 

It’s easy to create a sense of opulence in the beautifully restored 19th-century Mackelvie Gallery. 
Find your way to the Mackelvie Gallery along the mezzanine floor, taking in the balcony views down to the collection of New Zealand artwork on the level below.
Once within the Mackelvie Gallery, raise a toast beneath the barrel vaulted ceiling or enjoy a fine dinner between the neo-classical columns. Exchange wedding vows under the natural light that floods through the roof lantern in early evening and then host your reception in atmospheric low lighting as night falls. 
Whether a family or business occasion, experience the striking character and lavish opulence of this Victorian picture gallery. This luxurious space can host seated dinners for up to 110 guests and cocktail functions for 180 guests.
As the Auckland Art Gallery​ is open to the public during the day, this space is only available for functions and events in the evening.​​
