We could not have asked for a better filming location for our new STQRY Apps video than The Auckland War Memorial Museum (Tāmaki Paenga Hira) located in Auckland (Tāmaki Makaurau), New Zealand. In collaboration with the In Motion creative agency, we got to explore the museum up close during a private experience while using the museum's very own STQRY powered app.
As one of New Zealand’s first museums, the War Memorial Museum tells the story of the nation, its place in the Pacific, and its people. The iconic neo-classicist style building was constructed in the 1920s, sitting on a grassed plinth in the Auckland Domain. Since 1852, the museum is dedicated to curating extraordinary Māori and Pacific collections, major social and military history collections, decorative arts and pictorial collections, as well as showcasing significant natural history resources.
Our filming crew started on the grassed plinth outside to capture the unique charm of the architecture, and slowly moved into the museum and its exhibits. From the Grand Foyer to the top floor, we were lucky to learn about the country’s past and present through different collections. The filming took around three hours in total.
