As we look back on the past year, it is timely to reflect that Auckland War Memorial Museum’s Annual Plan FY 2020/21 was rewritten at a kitchen table during Aotearoa’s first Level 4 lockdown. It was a period of great uncertainty, as we responded as a nation to the global transmission of COVID-19.
The Plan responded to our changed circumstances and the loss of self-generated revenue streams. COVID-19 resulted in a 19% reduction in our operational cost base, deferral of projects, and adjustment of programmes.
The financial year continued to be a year of disruption shaped by the pandemic. Despite these challenges, it has been a year of significant achievement, with strong local visitation.
