The Great War Exhibition commemorates the very significant part that New Zealand played in the First World War.

The Exhibition takes you on a journey to war-time New Zealand, from the home front onto the battlefields of Gallipoli, Middle East and Europe, helping us to understand and ignite conversation about the past and the present. It is rich in personal stories and immersive experiences; activities and challenges highlight the realism of the sacrifices made by New Zealanders.

Fuelled by the creative mind of Sir Peter Jackson, and his devoted team at WingNut Films along with the New Zealand Government, we honour those lost in New Zealand's greatest tragedy, 100 years later.
