National War Memorial, New Zealand

National War Memorial, New Zealand

Located adjacent to New Zealand Dominion Museum building on the Buckle Street, National War Museum of NZ was constructed in 1932 as a dedication to First World War. The war memorial also pays homage to the New Zealanders who have lost their lives in various wars in the South Africa, in World War II and in countries like Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.

National War Memorial consists of three sections: the War Memorial Carillon, an unknown New Zealand warrior tomb and the Hall of Memories. Besides these, there are four Rolls of Honor which bear the names and ranks of about 28,654 New Zealanders. Visited by approx. 20,000 people every year, the bronze statue of a family group by Lyndon Smith acts as the focal point of the memorial.

Hall of Memories

This hall can be accessed by approaching the octagonal entrance located at the base of the Carillon Tower.  This hall consists of six memorial alcoves or hollow cavities on each side and an apse plus a Sanctuary at Hall’s southern end. All the alcoves have been designed as small side chapels which are dedicated to different branches of New Zealand Armed Forces that have served in overseas conflicts.
