Ninety-six medals, including nine Victoria Crosses, were recovered in February but have been kept under lock and key.
Now, there will be a handover ceremony to the museum curators in Waiouru on Tuesday.
The ceremony will involve all three services as well as police and run for about half a day from early morning.
The army says the focus of the ceremony will be the families of those who won the medals, taken in a daring smash and grab which prompted public outrage.
And amongst them is a descendant of a Kiwi hero whose medal was stolen on that fateful December morning.
"His name is Reginald Stanley Judson, he is my great, great grandfather and he got his Victoria Cross for bravery in France," says Tipene O'Brien, army recruit and Judson's great, great grandson.
"I am very proud. It's pretty good that we get the chance to take it back to the museum, bit silly that it got taken but it's awesome."
Security has been upgraded at the museum since the theft and the army says it is confident the medals will be well protected.
