Anzac Day marks New Zealand’s first major engagement of World War One at Gallipoli, Turkey. While it was a terrible defeat, it has gone on to become a legend of sacrifice and this year we commemorate 100 years since New Zealand soldiers landed at Gallipoli.

Following the dawn parade on Saturday 25 April 2015, Rotorua Museum will open early from 7am. Visitors can come to reflect and to commemorate all the men and women who have served their country, showing courage and loyalty.

Take time to remember those whose lives have been lost by writing a message on a poppy. These poppies can be added to our Anzac Day remembrance displays.

Don’t miss the moving 28 Maori Battalion film which runs every 30 minutes.

The Museum Café will be open from 9am for hot drinks, delicious Anzac biscuits and all-day breakfast.

Entry is included in Rotorua Museum’s admission price, which is free for Rotorua residents with relevant ID. General Museum admission: Adults $20, seniors $18 and children $8.
For further information please contact Rotorua Museum, phone 07 350 1814 or email
