Family in the Landscapes of Life Exhibition

Landscapes of Life

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.
