The building was closed but there is a lot of information outdoors and well worth a visit. I’m glad I made the effort to go there.

for ages I have seen this war memorial either on tv or in pictures and have always wanted to go and visit, personally I quite like seeing all the different war memorials there are around, so I made sure I had the time to be able to come and see this memorial when I had visited Wellington, I would have gone along to the Dawn service there also, maybe next time when I go back. Once again a pretty amazing Memorial

A nice walk from downtown. There has been a lot of work done to create a peaceful, serene environment around the memorial and that adds to the atmosphere.

We only found it as it was on our way to the beehive, hidden by other buildings it doesn't stand out

The National War Memorial commemorates all New Zealanders who died in the South African War. It is the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

We would har about Anzac Day frequently throughout our stay in New Zealand and Australia. Retrospectively I can tell you this was the best memorial we would visit. It not only honors those who lost their lives during World War I in Galipoli but also memorializes New Zealand heroes from the World War II, the South African War, the Vietnam War. the Korean War and battles in Malaysia.

There are a number of areas around the park commemorating various events and people. And in December 2018 a special memorial recognized the men and women of the United States who were in New Zealand to protect it from the enemy during World War II.

The park is worth a visit and some reflection.

A tall memorial that dominates the area set in a park with other items of remembrance. It is always difficult to stay the right side of the line between respectful remembrance and triumphalism, and you must decide if this has been accomplished.
