About Us

Commemorates the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women who have served our nation, with ceremonial areas, extensive exhibitions and research facilities. Regular free public tours operate daily.

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive. The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war.

Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.
