Sense the hardship and the heroism of World War I. The Great War Exhibition brings it home through remarkable objects and colourised photographs. Challenge yourself in The Trench Experience, an extraordinary re-creation of the trenches at Quinn’s Post, Gallipoli. The Great War Exhibition, created by Sir Peter Jackson and supported by ANZ, adjoins Pukeahu National Memorial Park. It is one of Wellington's treasures and a must-see when planning your itinerary for New Zealand's capital city. It tells the story of the First World War in brilliant colour, bringing the ordeals of this pivotal time in history into the modern day, helping us to understand the hardships endured by those who served and those who stayed behind.
