Let's visit the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa which is New Zealand's national museum, located in Wellington. Known as Te Papa, or 'Our Place', it opened in 1998 after the merging of the National Museum and the National Art Gallery. More than 1.5 million people visit every year.
We are going to visit the 'Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War' exhibit which tells the story of the Gallipoli campaign in World War I through the eyes and words of eight ordinary New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Each New Zealander is captured frozen in a moment of time on a monumental scale – 2.4 times human size.
The giant sculptures took a staggering 24,000 hours to create, and countless hours were spent researching their rich histories.
