Keeping you safe

Auckland is at orange under the ‘traffic light’ Covid-19 Protection Framework and Te Uru is open. We will be operating on a safety-first basis, taking all possible precautions to reduce further spread of the disease.

When visiting, please use our main front entrance on Titirangi Road, where we can offer any assistance you may need, including exhibition information, bag and umbrella storage, sanitiser and contact tracing.

Vaccine passes and scanning in are no longer required but, for everyone’s safety, all visitors over the age of 12 are required to wear a proper mask to enter our facilities, unless they have an exemption. This will ensure Te Uru is as safe as we can make it, and accessible for as many in our community as possible. The wellbeing of visitors and staff is our top priority, and it’s important our community knows that Te Uru is a safe space. We also need to accommodate requirements for education activities, events and hospitality.

Please stay home if you're feeling unwell. For those that are unable to visit, we’ll continue to offer online resources for our exhibitions and education activities, displays in our front window, and contactless shopping options. 

When open we'll be taking the following precautions to follow government guidelines so you can enjoy a safe visit to the gallery:

  • Regular cleaning of all door handles, hand rails, elevator buttons, chairs/benches and bathrooms
  • Contactless pay systems in the shop
  • Hand sanitiser is available on arrival and in other locations in the gallery
  • NZCovid Tracer app QR codes are available for those who still wish to scan in

We request that visitors continue to maintain physical distancing while in the gallery - two metres from anyone you don't know. Where possible, events will be seated and spaced out in accordance with government guidelines – please arrive early to ensure your place or book in advance when this option is available.

Should you need help around the gallery, please ask our staff at the front desk for directions.

If you’re feeling unwell, please stay at home and consider getting a test.

Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself. He waka eke noa!
