End of War

26 Jul 2018 – Nov 2018

Every year, we observe Armistice Day on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month – as the end of conflict in 1918. This exact timing gives the impression that the end of the war was clearly defined and concrete in nature, but in reality the road to peace was long and winding; marred by instability, frustration and ongoing aggression.

End of War, the story of the First World War  Armistice and the final exhibition in the Chapters of The Great War series, examines how the war ended and what it all meant for the New Zealand troops abroad and the people at home.

End of War is created by Story Inc. and Dusk, and funded by the Lottery Grants Board. The last of seven touring exhibitions, the show gives The Great War Exhibition a chance to tell the lesser-known stories the First World War. Opening & closing dates may be subject to change.
