Pou Kanohi New Zealand at War

opening October 2017
Auckland War Memorial Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira. PH-ALB-338.

In October this year, Auckland Museum will open up a captivating new gallery - Pou Kanohi New Zealand at War, sharing New Zealand’s experiences of World War One.
The Pou Kanohi gallery will be a place for families and individuals to learn about New Zealand’s unique story of war and reflect on why, 100 years later, it still matters.
The new space unites the restored heritage features of the gallery with digital experiences to bring together past and present thinking.
Catering for all learning styles, it will be an interactive space where youth are encouraged to go on a personal venture to explore and make discoveries throughout the gallery.
Funded by a significant Lotteries Grant, the new gallery sits next to the World War One Hall of Memories, opposite newly opened Pou Maumahara Memorial Discovery Centre.
We look forward to bringing you more information as the development of this gallery progresses.
