As part of our walk from the city center to Mount Victoria, started in Mount Cook at the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park and The Great War Exhibition. We have been fortunate enough to visit some fantastic museums in our lifes and The Great War Exhibition must go on our top-10 list. It is a must see for anyone intersted in World War history.
The museum stands out because it was designed and created in a unique way, through the guidance of film-maker Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, King Kong). The scenes are movie quality, the pictures are bright and colorful, and the collection is a step above others we’ve seen. The museum tells a story as you walk through from start to end of World War I. Very well done.
Adjacent from the front entrance is the National War Memorial which stands out in the city skyline. The Hall of Memories is in the base of the tower.
