Van Helden Gallery was established in Days Bay by Leo and Julie Van Helden in the early 1960’s. It was his dream to gather together artistic works of New Zealand artisans in his beachfront galley and showcase them to both local and overseas visitors. Forty years on, Van Helden Gallery maintains its position as one of the best known and oldest Wellington art galleries.

Van Heldens have a large selection of NZ ceramics, glassware, NZ artworks, greenstone and paua jewellery, kauri wood and pure silk pashminas.
