Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland

The Auckland War Memorial Museum (also known as Auckland Museum) traces New Zealand’s history, with a focus on its military.

The Auckland War Memorial Museum (also known as Auckland Museum) traces New Zealand’s history, with a focus on its military. It is housed in a sprawling neo-classicist building with the colonnades built as a replica of the Greek Parthenon, war scenes carved on the exterior frieze of the building, and names of New Zealand’s wars engraved above the windows.

The museum displays a large collection of Maori taonga (treasures) and Pacific Island artifacts. The He Taonga Maori Court exhibits objects from the time of the arrival and settlement of the Maoris, including a 12th century gateway carving from Lake Tangonge, Hotunui - a large carved meeting house built in 1878 at Thames, Te Toki a Tapiri - a waka taua (war canoe) from 1830, and other everyday objects from their lives. The Te Ao Turoa or the Maori Natural History gallery displays 1.5 million specimens from the fields of botany, entomology, geology, land vertebrates and marine biology. The Castle Collection showcases rare and antique musical instruments that are a part of New Zealand’s heritage.

The top floor of the museum is dedicated to New Zealand’s martyrs killed in various military engagements, with the World War I Sanctuary and the World War II Hall of Memories located here. The Roll of Honour, engraved in white Sicilian marble slabs with bronze leaf inset letters, runs along the walls. Memorial fountains on the east and west sides of the original building commemorated the Palestine campaign and Gallipoli.
