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
Very emotional. When you see what they sacrificed so we could like live the way we do. Make you really appreciate our way of like. The ANZAC section gave me a heavy chest. A day well spent and totally worth it. Everybody should pay it a visit.Great experience. Only Gold coin donation. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly and will to answer any questions you have.
Beautiful building with an amazing museum underneath. The updated WWI exhibit is truly brilliant. If you want to see everything there, you'll need a whole day. Parking is free. Admission is free (feel free to drop a donation in the box though). The cafe is a bit of a rip off, so bring your own lunch. Otherwise, great place to spend a day.
I had not been to the war memorial for a very long time so had a nice lunch at the cafe next door, and did a conducted tour. It was so worthwhile. Informative and the guide answered any question asked. The exhibits are fantastic and I'm told they change from time to time. Very worthwhile outing.
It really really worth visiting. Such a beautiful garden and several museum and art galleries which are nicely designed and really attracts all ages having modern technologies for showing photos and movies. It is disable friendly. It also has a good restaurant for having some rest and food.
I visited Canberra for two weeks in September 2018, my first time in Australia. The last member of my family to visit Australia was my grandfather, who was there in 1942 with the US Army's 32nd Infantry Division. He would later fight in the "island hopping campaign" in New Guinea, Guadalcanal, and the liberation of the Philippines with his Australian allies. He always spoke highly of the Australians, so of course the War Memorial was one of my first stops. It was truly amazing. The reverence that I felt there reminded me of the way I felt at Pearl Harbor. I highly highly recommend it. Amazing place.
