Join us on the 101st Anzac Day as we honour the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli and other conflicts in which New Zealand has been involved.
About Anzac Day at Auckland War Memorial Museum.
New Zealand sent more men to fight in the First World War per head of population than any other nation. Of those killed, almost a third were buried half a world away in unmarked graves.
Following the war, subscriptions were raised to construct the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The Museum opened in 1929 and became a symbolic meeting place for Aucklanders to honour and commemorate the fallen.
