On Tuesday it is still windy, but we explore the harbor then stroll to the Te Papa Museum. We start at the top on Level 6 to see the view of the city/harbor from the Terrace. Then we wind through the various exhibits.
When we reach Level 2 there is huge exhibit "Gallipoli: The scale of our war". I recall from reading a biography of Winston Churchill that the Gallipoli Peninsula was a huge battle in WWI where the British were defeated after many months of battle, but I had never associated it with New Zealand. The museum does an amazing job with 25 foot models of people as well as side exhibits explaining the battle and the conditions from the viewpoint of the New Zealand sailors and infantry who were deployed to the battle.
