ALL YEAR ROUND ACTIVITY

SURVIVOR WWI

 

More New Zealanders died in WWI than all subsequent conflicts, including WWII. Imagine it is 1914 and you are going to war. The odds are against you returning fit and healthy, and if you do survive, you will have endured gruelling hardship and terror…and horrors that you cannot speak of.

 

Take the SURVIVOR WWI challenge and see how you fare. Spin the wheel. Who will survive?
 

Open Now. Young children must be supervised by an adult. Suitable for ages 5 & up.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 3pm - 4.30pm
Wednesday: 3pm - 6pm
Saturday: 11am - 2pm

CUSTOMISED PROGRAMMES

The storeroom and archive contain artifacts and information that seldom see the light of day. This resource can be used to develop a programme that matches a museum experience to your classroom study. For most requests we need 6 weeks to develop a programme. We may be unable to meet your request if our collection lacks artifacts that support your study.

Programmes we have produced include:
    As Good as Gold and London's Calling – The Olympics ( Y3-8)
    Wash Day (Year 1-2)
    Business and Innovation (Year 10)
    Tiriti o Waitangi (Year 7-8)
    The Games We Played – Old Toys (Year 3-4)

There is no additional charge for this service.
