Description

Gain insight into the World War I history of Anzac Cove at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Peruse the museum's celebrated Gallipoli Exhibition before it opens to the public and hear stories of the New Zealanders who fought on behalf of the British Empire during this fateful battle.

Arrive at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in the morning and enjoy special access to the museum before it opens to the public. As you cross the threshold into the Gallipoli Exhibition, travel back in time to the Great War, when the inexperienced Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) fought for the British Empire in battlegrounds on the far side of the world.

A knowledgeable docent leads you through the exposition, which features larger-than-life figures, including 7 soldiers and 1 nurse who fearlessly devoted themselves to the Gallipoli Campaign. At 2.4 times the traditional human size, the monumental sculptures are an artistic rendering of the past that offer an intriguing look at real historical events.

The educational display also features 3-D maps, miniature figures, and an assortment of interactive experiences. Following your time at the Gallipoli Exhibition, enjoy full-day access to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa's more than 6 floors of celebrated cultural artefacts.
