The Auckland War Memorial Museum - a report by Lisiate

The Auckland Museum is a HUGE place filled with historical artifacts of New Zealand.The Maori artifacts and the War Memorial are important New Zealand artifacts.
The Museum looks like the White House but a little browner. It gives it an impressive look.
The Auckland Museum is located in the Auckland Domain,facing the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It was built in 1929. It been there for 110 years. It’s hard work to build the museum. There are three different levels and 30 different displays and galleries.
The Auckland Museum is a major place where you can learn about different cultures. Thousands of schools visit there to learn about cultures and major disasters. It is a perfect place for people to learn about the traditions and customs of the pacific cultures.
All visitors should visit the volcanic room on the first floor. You can sit in a model house and you will experience what it is like during an eruption. On display are volcanic rocks that were used by Maori to warn of eruptions.
The war memorial is on the second floor. In the armoury has lots of weapons, armour and medals from the museum’s collections. Also see the names of New Zealanders from the Auckland Province who died in wars that New Zealand has fought in.
If you live in Auckland and haven’t been you should visit the War Memorial Museum. It is a place where you can learn about New Zealand and Pacific history. Especially, New Zealand’s part in World Wars.
