Anne Frank - Let Me Be Myself Exhibition

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

10am to 4pm daily (Closed 25th and 26th December). Included in general admission.

Imagine spending years in hiding because of prejudice and hate. Developed by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and viewed by more than 10 million people in 80 countries, this exhibition explores what life was life for Anne Frank and her family. Using their experience to explore the events around WW2 and the Holocaust, the exhibition asks each visitor to consider what they might do in similar circumstances, while exploring themes of identity, prejudice and discrimination through the contemporary stories of six young people coping with the challenges of being different from their peers.

In 2015 the Anne Frank House has launched the travelling exhibition: ‘Let Me Be Myself’ - The Life Story of Anne Frank. It is the successor of the acclaimed exhibition Anne Frank - A History for Today that was shown in 90 countries since 1995.

The new exhibition and its accompanying educational programme aims to inform young people about Anne Frank and the Holocaust, and challenge them to explore subjects like identity, prejudice and discrimination. The worldwide launch of ’Let Me Be Myself’ took place in Canberra, Australia, in February 2015.

Whangarei Museum is very proud to have been invited by the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand to host this exhibition, after hosting the original Anne Frank Exhibition in 2010.

About this Venue

Visit the nocturnal Kiwi House and see the resident kiwi foraging for food as they would in the wild. Learn about Kiwi conservation or see if you can spot one of our native geckos.

The Museum is home to nationally significant taonga (Maori treasure), early settler displays and changing exhibitions. The Clarke Homestead “Glorat” built in 1886 and lived in by the Clarke family until the 1980s is a museum in itself, displaying the family’s treasures through the generations.

Other heritage buildings on site include the first Women’s Jail, Jane Mander’s Study, Oruaiti Chapel (made from a single Kauri log and believed to be New Zealand’s smallest church) and Riponui Pah School House.

Set aside several hours, bring a picnic and take in the grounds of Heritage Park.

Home to regular “Live Days” where you will see the Park come to life! – The Heritage Park Clubs open their doors to the public revealing displays of vintage farm machinery, stationary engines, and vintage cars. Novelty rides include miniature and full-sized trains, bullocks, miniature ponies and vintage tractors. Food stalls, face painting and an eclectic mix of family fun activities provide that festive flavour.

Park over property for NZ Motor Caravan Association members.
