Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A poignant site for remembering World War I. We took an Uber from the CBD. It is a short 10 minute drive. The main building is not open due to renovations. You can see the memorial contributions of several countries. Doesn't take more than 10 minutes but well – worth seeing. Check out my reviews of other tourist sites in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Brisbane. Feel free to give me a like if you like this review. There is a Salvation Army thrift store across the street if you are interested.

We stopped by here & had a chance to view the memorial. It is a great memorial for their war veterans. Not a main stop but good to see as part of a tour

A must see for travelers to Wellington. New Zealand has done a great job of honoring their war dead.

Simply to pay your respects at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, I think this is a must do for all Kiwis. Sadly earthquake strengthening work means that for the time being only outside locations are accessible.

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
