On Saturday the 12th of July my I dragged my unwilling husband back to Te Papa Museum because I wanted to see the ANZAC exhibition I had seen on Friday but did not have time to see as we had to rush somewhere else on Friday.
The name of the exhibition is The scale of our war. The queue to go inside was a long one and people lining up to go inside were of all ages and from different cultural backgrounds. One staff member stood at the front allowing people to go inside and I figured the numbered entries was to eliminate over crowding inside so everyone has enough time to view the exhibition, read the captions and also collect their thoughts and reflect on what they see.
Finally we were through and as we entered we saw a soldier right in front of up standing about 4-5 metres. It was amazing to see such a real life looking soldier in front of our eyes and right then and there I knew this was going to be a very good exhibition.
As we went through I could not help but wish I was walking through with my class as they have learnt so much about the ANZACS.
I later learnt the exhibition was created by the Weta Cave company which I believed is owned by the famous Peter Jackson. I commend the staff at Weta Cave for the magnificent work which went into creating this exhibition. I have also described in the best way I can to Room 10 how special this exhibition is and urged them to consider with their parents visiting Wellington and viewing the exhibition for themselves.
