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.

  • Very well presented and laid out. You can spend over 4hrs here reading through all the history and gaining some insightful knowledge about what it was like during the different wars. Brilliant memorial to all the troops involved.

  • Great place to visit If you enjoy your war history. I was here for a couple hours and still didn't get through it all.. I need to come back. The exhibits are amazing.

  • Do yourself a favour. This place needs a week to soak it all in. It gets better and bigger with every visit. Truly one of the best museums in Australia. An absolute necessity if in Canberra.

  • This is one of the best place I have visited from all Canberra. If you are serious enough about history this is grate place to spend some time to learn many stuff. Very resourceful and versatile

  • Amazing. Emotional. Eye opening. I have been once, 10 years ago. Visited again just for half hour the other day as I did not have much time. Worth it and will be back for a 2 day trip with my Dad to do the guided tours and be able to really see it.
