Step inside a world of theatrical and architectural wonder and discover the secrets of The Civic!  

​'What an enlightening tour - we would never have believed there was so much to the Civic Theatre! - we can't recommend this tour highly enough…' - Tour patron

Warm with nostalgia, The Civic Tours take visitors on a journey that spans almost one hundred years, from the venue’s inception in the late 1920s and heyday in the 1930s and 40s, bustling with showgirls, cabaret acts, and celebrities, through to the 1990s where the venue’s future lay in the balance before its glorious restoration to the iconic venue that breathes life into the heart of Auckland today.

Join our entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides as they take you on a journey through the last remaining 'atmospheric' theatre in the southern hemisphere, capture unique photographs and uncover the incredible history that brings this amazing venue to life.
