This ground-breaking exhibition developed with Weta Workshop tells the story of the Gallipoli campaign in World War I through the eyes and words of eight ordinary New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances.

Each is captured frozen in a moment of time on a monumental scale – 2.4 times human size. The giant sculptures took a staggering 24,000 hours to create, and countless hours were spent researching their rich histories.

Cutting-edge technology was also used to create 3-D maps and projections, miniatures, models, dioramas, and a range of interactive experiences that bring New Zealand’s Gallipoli story to life.

In total, 2,779 Kiwis lost their lives on Gallipoli, and many others were scarred for ever. Gallipoli: The scale of our war takes you to the core of this defining event.

*This exhibition has been extended until ANZAC Day 2022.

Parental guidance is recommended as the exhibition contains graphic content and some language that may offend. This exhibition explores the experiences of real New Zealanders at Gallipoli through their own words and images. Certain content may disturb some visitors. We recommend that adults supervise their children.
