Be the first to see this emotive new exhibition, where words written in many hands across many centuries declare strikingly similar messages: "I love you. I miss you." From letters and diaries to emails and direct messages, this exhibition will explore the ways we communicate feelings of love and how that has changed and stayed the same over time. Bringing together letters from Auckland War Memorial Museum's Documentary Heritage collection with loans and donations from the public, "Love & Loss" is about the emotional power of the written word and the sacred place letters, messages, and texts hold in all our lives. Take a deeper look with our exclusive Preview Talk & Tour. Hear exhibition curator and Auckland Museum’s Curator of Manuscripts Nina Finigan (of National Treasures TV fame) along with Interpretive Planner Kavi Chetty share their journey in creating "Love & Loss".
