The Great War Exhibition, created by Sir Peter Jackson and supported by ANZ, tells the global story of the First World War. Journey through the war, scene by scene, year by year, seeing the challenges and technology changes that emerged. Experience the desperate horrors and the triumphs of the human spirit that characterised this tragedy.

The Great Hall in Wellington’s historic Dominion Museum Building houses the story of Europe’s war from 1914 - 1918. From a peaceful pre-war Belgium village, visitors are plunged into the conflict and confronted by scenes of trenches, massive guns, planes and tanks. While the Great War is seen in black and white by many, Sir Peter shows it in vivid colour through hundreds of photographs from the era which have been painstakingly colourised to melt away the last 100 years.

The ANZ New Zealand room focuses on New Zealand’s story. It contains an enormous diorama featuring over 5000 tiny, hand-painted figurines frozen in time at the capture of Chunuk Bair on 8 August 1915. The diorama demonstrates the desperate fighting, bravery and leadership on both sides of this crucial battle.
