Australian War Memorial
One of Australia's most popular museums can be found at the Australian War Memorial.
A visit to the mosaic Hall of the Memory and Commemorative Courtyard with its Roll of Honor is a moving and poignant experience, enhanced by the huge collection housed in the museum.
Pictures, dioramas, models, relics, weaponry, uniforms and machinery evoke the experience of war, including a sound and light show in Anzac Hall.
Guided tours explain the role played by Australian soldiers during the two world wars, as well as more recent conflicts.
The Australian War Memorial is symbolically sited diagonally across from Capital Hill and Parliament House, separated by Lake Burley Griffin.
The Explorer Bus delivers and picks up from the memorial. From the city center it’s a 30-minute walk.
