High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The National Army Museum
(Maori - Te Mata Toa) is the museum of the New Zealand Army. It was
formerly known as the Queen Elizabeth II Army Memorial Museum. It
is situated 94 minutes south of Taupo on State Highway One, on the
southern side of the small military town of Waiouru. The 1300
square metre museum is fortress-looking in design, complete with a
bridge and moat. It took the 2nd Field Squadron of the Royal New
Zealand Engineers (RNZE) 276 days to build, and was opened in
October 1978. According to the museum's literature, it functions as
a memorial to those who have fallen, to those who have served and
are still serving, and to the battles fought by New Zealand
soldiers. It is also a research, teaching and training facility of
New Zealand's military history. Associated literature reveals "the
museum serves as a place of connection between visitors and the
nation's military past, a place where people can engage with real
life stories and experiences and discover how these conflicts have
shaped the nation."
