This programme is for the following year groups: Years 1–3, Years 4–6, Years 7–8, Years 9–13

Pou Kanohi is the Museum’s first dedicated war memorial space aimed at educating young people about World War I and contemplating why, 100 years on, it’s still relevant. 

Collectible content enables students to explore pivotal WWI events through letters, photographs, and diaries in greater depth online, back in school or at home. Rich with collections and multiple perspectives, Pou Kanohi presents the key events of the war through an illustrated multimedia timeline, enhanced with objects and immersive interactive experiences.

Funded by a significant Lotteries Grant, the gallery is next to the World War I Hall of Memories, opposite the recently opened Pou Maumahara Memorial Discovery Centre. The interactive gallery is a public learning resource aligned with the school curriculum.

This is a self-guided experience but bookings are essential.
