Discover the fateful Gallipoli campaign that helped forge a nation's identity with Te Papa's groundbreaking exhibition.

Gallipoli: The scale of our war brings together the award-winning craftsmanship of Weta Workshop and the research and storytelling expertise of our national museum. 

Explore the tragedies and sacrifices of this gritty period of war, as told through the stories of eight Anzacs who experienced first-hand the horrors of the battlefield. 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 3D maps and projections, miniatures, models, dioramas, and a range of interactive experiences that bring New Zealand's Gallipoli story to life.

The exhibition is free-of-charge to ensure everyone has the opportunity to go on a journey back to Gallipoli.

Parental guidance is recommended as the exhibition contains graphic content and some language may offend.
