Gallipoli in Minecraft® learning kit

As part of our centenary education programme, Auckland Museum is using the popular Minecraft® game to engage students with the events that occurred at Gallipoli in 1915.

Auckland War Memorial Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira.

About the project

We collaborated with students from Alfriston College to re-create the landscape of 1915 Gallipoli in Minecraft®, block by block. Working with Auckland Museum staff and utilising our First World War collections, the students explored the experiences of the New Zealand people who served in the 1915 campaign.
