New Zealand Museums: Auckland

I have located only one museum in New Zealand with an airship exhibit. If I encounter other museums in New Zealand which are verified to have an airship exhibit they will be included here.

Auckland War Memorial Museum

At the Auckland War Memorial Museum there is a small display about airships consisting of a few displays and small artifacts related to the WW I bombings in England.
