At the heart of the Remembrance Centre is a fascinating, interactive exhibition called Landscapes of Life. This exhibition provides a preview of the Arboretum and an introduction to the concept of Remembrance and why it is an important human need spanning thousands of years. With audio visual displays, hands-on interactives, artistic interpretation and the opportunity for visitors to share their experiences, it's the perfect start to a visit.
We also host an exciting temporary programme throughout the year, featuring a changing selection of exhibitions, galleries and installations. In the past we have partnered with 14-18Now, Manchester Art Gallery and Kew Gardens, amongst many other well know names.
Located in the Arboretum’s Far East Zone, and visible from the car park, the Far East Prisoners of War Memorial Building tells the stories of those interned as prisoners of war during the Second World War, through the use of artefacts and immersive interpretation.
