In 1901, visitors to the newly opened Lindauer Art Gallery on Queen Street in Auckland were able to sign a Visitors' Book and leave a comment about their experience. In the same spirit, we invite you to sign your name and share your reflections in the Whakamīharo Lindauer Online Guestbook.

Kimberly Sheppard Sarasota I am fascinated by your history and culture. I am an avid All Black Rugby fan,Through the years began researching the tradition behind the haka. It has opened many paths of more wonderful history. I hope to visit New Zealand in my life time. I am presently in Florida, U.S.A.
