The Verdict

The Arts House Trust holds one of the most extensive collections of contemporary art in New Zealand. Located in the stunning historic Pah Homestead, in Hillsborough's Monte Cecilia Park, it is host to a regular rotation of art exhibitions from Aotearoa artists, with works selected from the 9000 plus collection and host to nationally touring exhibitions.

The Italianate architecture of the heritage building is itself a work of art and juxtaposes wonderfully with the selected works. The venue is also host to concerts, markets and community events, including live free music each Saturday at midday. The on-site cafe offers covered verandah seating with views overlooking the Sculpture Garden and One Tree Hill. The Gallery Shop exclusively features the work of Aotearoa artists, providing wonderful options for unique gifts.
