The Great War Exhibition commemorates the very significant part that New Zealand played in the First World War.

The exhibition takes you on a journey to war-time New Zealand, from the home front onto the battlefields of the Pacific, Middle East and Europe, helping us to understand and ignite conversation about the past and the present. It is rich in personal stories and immersive experiences, activities and challenges highlighting the realism of the sacrifices made by New Zealanders.

Fuelled by the creative mind of Sir Peter Jackson and his team at WingNut Films, with the support of the New Zealand government, we honour those lost in New Zealand's greatest tragedy, 100 years later.

The Quinn’s Post Trench Experience

Live moment to moment, as the ANZAC troops did in the trenches at GallipolI, only a bomb’s throw away from the Turks. In this unique re-creation of Quinn’s Post, encounter the noise, the explosions, the stench, the confined environment those men had to deal with during the ferocious struggle between opposing forces. At times confronting, this will be an experience like no other!

The Trench Experience may be booked as a stand-alone option, however, our combo deal is the best way to experience The Great War Exhibition and Quinn’s Post Trench Experience. Our combo includes admission, a 45-minute guided tour from one of our knowledgeable guides and the 30-minute sensory experience within The Trench.

The Quinn’s Post Trench sensory experience may not be suitable for all visitors.

Further information and tour details can be found on The Great War Exhibition website.
