We had heard from lots of adults that the new War Memorial at Pukeahu Park was worth a visit. But you can never really tell if an adult’s recommendation is as good as a kid’s.
The War Memorial isn’t just good, it is awesome and really sad. Zoe took a hundred photos of the World war one exhibition and here are some of them.
One of the best parts of the exhibition and the New Zealand room were the old photos that had been coloured. They seemed more real and the tour guide said that more museums are colourising photos as people are less likely to walk past them thinking they can’t relate to them.
The War memorial is worth a visit whether you are young like us or old like our Mum! Definitely do the guided tour as we found out a lot more and the tour guide Stephen was really interesting.
We posed on the memorial stones from the Australians too.
