An excellent exhibit the brings to life some of the ANZAC’s most devastating WWI battles. The expansive “walk around” diorama of the Battle of Chunuk Bair is worth the entry fee all on its own. The Trench Experience is a superb re-creation of trench warfare...More

Hi Benjamin. I have been to both when on holiday in Wellington a couple of months ago. They are each very different and both worth going to see. We did the guided tour at the Old Dominion Museum Building for an extra $10... More
