A time to reflect on the New Zealand Wars

Narrated experience

A time to reflect on the New Zealand Wars


Join the Museum for an unique experience as we unpack the New Zealand Wars from a place of peace. This narrated, embodied experience invites us into the dark times in our history so we can examine what they might mean to us today, as we stand in peace.

You will have a set of personal, wireless headphones and be lead through the experience by a narrator that will take you throughout the Auckland War Memorial Museum and ask you to take part in revealing the story.

This experience is approximately 40 minutes long. The content is not suitable for children under 12 as topics discussed are for a mature audience. 

Auckland Museum would like to thank Jerome Kavanagh for allowing the use of two of his compositions using taonga pūoro, Hine Pū te Hue and Te Orokohanga.

Please note, the start time will be 1PM on Sunday 11 October only.
