What's in a name?

The facility has three names – in English, Te Reo Māori, and French.

English: New Zealand Liberation Museum, Le Quesnoy

Te Reo Māori: Te Arawhata

French: Muśee Néo-Zélandais de la Libération, Le Quesnoy France

The English and French names refer to the liberation of the town of Le Quesnoy by New Zealand soldiers at the end of WWI and highlight the themes of freedom, friendship and future which underpin the museum.

The Te Reo Māori name – Te Arawhata – means ‘the ladder’ in English. The town was liberated by ladder, with the name also conveying an elevated pathway to higher things and the realm of knowledge.
