PHTM is situated in Howick, East Auckland. We are near the intersection of Elliot and Moore Streets. The white and red Polish Flag will be flying to welcome you next to the museum building. The Museum consists of two levels, the Upper and Lower Galleries.
The Lower Gallery also contains the PHT Library and has facilities to screen movies and documentaries (up to 50 visitors) and houses part of the museum collection, but the main collection is in the Upper Gallery. We do not have a lift but you have to deal with only a dozen stairs. Free parking is available in the Museum grounds. Buses can also park in this area.
