Event Details

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First World War’s Armistice Day, Auckland War Memorial Museum presents a looped film projected onto the northern façade of the building.

The film includes specially-created content using poignant images from the Museum’s collection showing faces of those who served in the First World War, alongside a moving poppy motif. The presentation will also feature a short film created by WW100, explaining how the impacts of WWI ricocheted around the world and can still be felt today.

The screening will take place against the backdrop of over 18,000 white crosses installed into Auckland Domain by the Fields of Remembrance Trust.


FREE 15 minute film sequence screening on Auckland Museum’s Northern Facade from 8:30pm to 11:00pm each evening.
