Following the commemorative service of ‘War Begins’, the Museum will showcase its Centenary Programme with a weekend packed full of activities on-site, off-site and online. Immerse yourself in multiple stories of the First World War through talks, gallery tours, music, and poems. Hear finalists from Play it Strange’s ‘The Calling’ competition and the winners of Printable Reality’s ‘Poems4Peace’. Watch Ilona Rodgers and Cathie Harrop perform excerpts from their new play ‘They Also Serve’ and talk about women in wartime. Discover how the Pacific was involved in WWI and listen to the Auckland Gospel Choir sing songs that sustained those who served.

Visit our Library Expo and explore the wealth of our WWI collections. You can also step back in time and choose to enlist in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in our interactive recruitment drive.
