Located in Canberra, The Australian War Memorial is a world class museum that commemorates Australians who have died in war. It covers Australia's involvement in war from the colonial period in 1788 to present day peacekeeping. The exhibits feature memorabilia from First World War, Second World War, Occupation of Japan, South African War, Korean War, Vietnam War, the First and Second Gulf War and many more.
The Memorial's galleries showcase one of the world's greatest military collections. You can either explore the museum on your own or take a free guided tour which runs for 90 minutes several times each day.
The museum also features a discovery zone, an interactive area suitable for children. Kids can climb, jump, crawl, touch and explore different environments inspired by Australia's military history.
During summer the museum holds many child friendly activities including art talks, craft and diorama workshop sessions, film screenings and curator-led tours.
