Queen Elizabeth II – Vale Regina exhibition

A memorial exhibition for Queen Elizabeth II has opened at Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa National Library in Wellington following her death.

The tribute to Queen Elizabeth II draws on the pictorial records held by the Alexander Turnbull Library, Archives New Zealand and Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision. These collections are richest in illustrating the visit during that ‘royal summer’ of 1953–54, so images from that tour are predominant in this 26-image exhibition.

The free exhibition is open to the public on the ground floor during National Library opening hours of 9am to 5pm on weekdays and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

The exhibition, in te reo Māori and English, can also be viewed online at the National Library of New Zealand website.

A Condolence Book is also available in the National Library main foyer for visitors to pay their respects to the late monarch.
