I recommend the Auckland Museum, both to adults + kids.
Web page http://www.aucklandmuseum.com/
Google+ page https://plus.google.com/102147837912034149164/about?hl=en

One of the exhibitions is the World of Wearable Arts awards exhibition.

There is a Maori Marae there and also maori cultural performances.

The conflict history is also because the Auckland Museum is a war memorial.
It is the main spot for dawn service on ANZAC Day. There's other anzac day
services through out auckland.

My nephews who are now 7 + 5 have enjoyed visiting the museum since they
were able to walk around. They have the weird + wonderful section for kids
There's also the earthquake home and exhibits showing natural history .
Weird and wonderful has insects (both live + dead), arachnids (dead ones)
and some amphibians (tree frog, gecko)

Being active boys they also like the fact there's lots of steps to go up
and down outside as well as inside. The big guns/cannon out front to climb
