Gallipoli at Te Papa

April 1 - April 1, 2019

The scale of our war exhibition

To mark the World War I centenary, Te Papa has joined forces with Weta Workshop to create an exhibition like no other.

Gallipoli: The scale of our war combines the world of museums with the world-class creative artistry of Weta Workshop to immerse you in the eight-month Gallipoli campaign.

The ground-breaking exhibition tells the story through the eyes and words of eight ordinary New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Each is captured frozen in a moment of time on a monumental scale – 2.4 times human size.

As close neighbours of Te Papa, QT Wellington is a fine place to base yourself as you take in the exhibits that line the walls of Te Papa.
