The National Army Museum Te Mata Toa, along with the help of the New Zealand Lotteries Commission, developed a travelling WWI exhibition which toured around the country visiting over 25 destinations throughout New Zealand during 2015 - 2016.
Heartlanders: New Zealanders of the Great War has now made its way back to Waiōuru and will be open to the general public during the 2017 Term 1 April school holidays. This outdoor exhibition, built-in containers, tells the stories of ordinary New Zealanders in WWI and was created to bring the accounts of the brave soldiers who fought during the Great War back home to the communities where their journey began.
Original film footage sourced from New Zealand and overseas, period music and battle sounds together with original artefacts from the museum’s own collection accompany the tales of the Heartlanders.
This outdoor display will be open free of charge during the school holidays (18th – 28th April) at the National Army Museum in Waiōuru, excluding weekends and the Easter break.
