Australian War Memorial

Galleries, Museums and Collections

As the centre for national commemoration, the Australian War Memorial is expanding its galleries as part of a major Development Project to tell contemporary stories of Australian service and sacrifice.

All visitors require a free-timed ticket to enter the Memorial Galleries and attend the Last Post Ceremony. Visitors should book their free ticket in advance to guarantee entry.

The Australian War Memorial is pleased to be Trip Advisor’s number one attraction in Canberra.

Bringing together a world-class museum, a shrine and an extensive archive, it tells the stories of men and women who have served, and continue to serve our nation in war, conflict and operations. Through exhibitions, artworks, large technology objects and personal records, we share personal experiences of military service.

Iconic areas of the Memorial will remain accessible to visitors including: Aircraft Hall, Hall of Valour, First World War Galleries, Second World War Galleries, and the Commemorative Area which includes the Hall of Memory, Roll of Honour and Pool of Reflection. The Discovery Centre at the Memorial is temporarily closed along with limited access for the Conflicts 1945 to Today galleries.
