The pah homestead

The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is an exciting cultural destination in Auckland. Located in the historic Pah Homestead in Monte Cecilia Park, Hillsborough, the Arts Centre opened to the public in August 2010. 

The Pah Homestead was fully restored by the Auckland City Council together with the support of TSB Bank from 2009 to 2010 as the new home of the Wallace Arts Trust and its Collection.

The Arts Centre hosts a changing programme of contemporary art exhibitions curated from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection of over 9,000 works, as well as regional touring exhibitions. The Arts Centre also runs ongoing community education programmes targeting Auckland schools and the wider public.

An artist in residency programme in association with Otago University is an important component of the Arts Centre. This partnership also provides for exhibitions curated from the extensive collections of the Hocken Library.

Many thanks to the Auckland Decorative and Fine Arts Society and its members who provide ongoing support to the Arts Centre through the provision of Volunteer Gallery Guides.

The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is open to the public Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5pm. The Arts Centre is closed every Monday. Entry is by koha.
