'Poles Apart' (1 hour) tells the poignant story and background of 733 Polish children and 102 adults who came to live in Pahiatua, New Zealand, 1944. These survivors were forcibly deported from Poland to Russia during World War 2 then evacuated to Persia during a short amnesty. They eventually found a home in New Zealand.

Stay awhile and wander the museum galleries, history, culture artworks and more....

The Polish museum is for all New Zealanders and visitors.
