Housed within the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, Great War Exhibition is a national treasure and a must-see.
The Great War Exhibition, created by Sir Peter Jackson, commemorates the role played by New Zealand in the First World War.
Master film-maker, Sir Peter Jackson, with the support of ANZ, has recreated the global story of the First World War at The Great War Exhibition. A stunning array of movie-like sets depicts the war; scene by scene; year by year. From the massive 10-tonne tank and 11-tonne gun to the 5,000 tiny hand-painted figurines which re-enact the battle of Chunuk Bair, the artefacts are rare and thought-provoking.
But perhaps it is the hundreds of photographs from the era, which have been painstakingly colourised, that really melt away the last 100 years.
This is truly a world-class exhibition, acclaimed by international visitors and New Zealanders alike. It shows the hardship and bravery of those who lived through this pivotal time in history – the horrors of war as well as the bravery and spirit which endured.
