Visit the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand in Wellington

The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand inspires and empowers action against antisemitism, discrimination, and apathy, by remembering, educating, and bearing witness to the Holocaust. Started by a small group of volunteers including Holocaust survivors, refugees, and their descendants, the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand (HCNZ) is the country’s national Holocaust education and remembrance centre.

How much is admission to the museum?

General entry is absolutely free. Head on down today. Donations, however, are very much appreciated. The centre is a registered charity.

HCNZ was established in 2007 to remember and honour the victims, and survivors, of the Holocaust, especially families of survivors in New Zealand.  Our core exhibition focuses on the unique New Zealand connections to the Holocaust, sharing survivor stories of before, during and after the Holocaust, a timeline of events in Europe & the parallel timeline of New Zealand responses, and much more!
