Heartlanders: New Zealanders of the Great War is the National Army Museum’s travelling exhibition touring New Zealand. The exhibition, built in containers, tells the stories of ordinary New Zealanders in World War One and brings their special stories back to the communities where their journey began.

The exhibition includes stories from survivors as well as about those who fell.Original film footage sourced from New Zealand and overseas, period music and battle sounds, together with original artefacts from the museum’s own collection, make up the bulk of the exhibition. The Auckland War Memorial Museum Artefact Digitisation Unit will also be on hand so that people can add their content to the Centotaph.
