Gallipoli in Minecraft® - Fri 24 Apr – Sun 11 Oct 2015 / Auckland War Memorial Museum

Anzac Cove, Gallipoli in Minecraft created by Alfriston College students.
Auckland War Memorial Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira.
Come and explore the Gallipoli campaign in an exhibition featuring the interactive world of Minecraft®. This hugely popular online game is about breaking and placing blocks. Since its inception players have worked together to create all sorts of incredible and imaginative things.
Over the past year students from Alfriston College have re-created the landscape of 1915 Gallipoli in Minecraft®, block by block. Working with the Museum’s staff and utilising our First World War collections, the students have learnt about the experiences of the New Zealand soldiers in the 1915 campaign.
The Gallipoli in Minecraft® world will be available to download from 25 April.
