Australian War Memorial - Review

There something about a war memorial that brings out feelings of patriotism and empathy in everyone. The Australian war memorial does just that and so much more; it talks about how war has shaped Australia’s identity and speaks about the valiant sacrifices made for the honour of the country. The museum is touching and memorable, with plenty of audio-visiuals packed in for special effect. The tomb of the unknown soldier has a certain melancholy attached to it that moves the visitor. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Canberra itinerary 1 day.

Australian War Memorial, Canberra Reviews

  • One of the most popular attraction in Canberra. Lots of good views, friendly staffs.There are collections since the first day to recent modern war. Some sections have audios and films support. The cars and ships models are awesome. Definitely worth your time.

  • Definitely worth seeing when in Canberra! You can easily spend a full day here exploring the many exhibits filled with Australia's War history. It's broken up into sections depending on the era, so it's easier to navigate. Free to enter, and free underground parking as well. They also offer guided tours throughout the day which I would highly recommend as they are more informative, take you to the highlights and are completely free! The guides are extremely passionate and it gives you a personalised view on war history.

  • Incredible building, displays, memorial elements, sound and lighting shows, collections. One of my favourite places in the whole country to visit. You could easily spend the whole day here. Great cafes too. Part of what keeps our ANZAC spirit alive.

  • Truly Amazing Place. The detail in which all installations have been documented so beautifully is remarkable. It is a magnificent War Museum for sure. On one hand it is a most surprising place, I never thought I would go to, and on the other hand, it is also sad for some of course. Very helpful staff. Easy to park.

  • I highly recommend this place if in Canberra. You could spend hours here so plan the trip accordingly if you are interested in learning more. Good for kids too as so much to see and learn. The museum is so well managed and the content is so targetted and sobering that it makes me proud to be an Australian and also so very sad to be reminded what destruction war has in the past present and future, it never stops. They conduct free tours so you are well informed of the tribulations our soldiers and many others endured. You could also wonder around yourself and get an audio guide, everything is very well laid out. The museum itself is also free and but i would happily pay if I needed too.
