Visiting Te Papa’s Gallipoli: The scale of our war exhibition is a fitting way to commemorate our fallen servicemen and women this Anzac Day. The exhibition is brought to life with monumental figures 2.4 times human size which were created by Weta Workshop. The stories of these eight ordinary New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances are woven into the exhibition, which explores the Gallipoli campaign through the words and experiences of those who fought, and died, on the Turkish peninsula.

The free exhibition is at Te Papa on level 2 and open daily from 10am till 6pm.
