The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive. The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war.
Skip the tour and walk around yourself, that way you take it at your own pace and get to read all the bits that interest you!
Stay till 5pm to catch the closing ceremony. A piper or bugler will play and occasionally Australia's Federation Guard are involved.
The Research Centre is open to the public Mon-Fri 10-5, and Saturday 1-5.
Really requires approx 3hrs time allowance to really appreciate everything
Go into the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and have a close look at the wall mosaics and the stained glass windows.
Allow lots of time! 2 hours... not enough. Stay for the 5pm ceremony, it's very moving and you will hear a story about one of our amazing service men or women, volunteers from defence read them out.
u can come to remeber
Parking is free if you drive.The last tour ends at 3 pm but check website for change of times. The one not to miss is the "last post ceremony" time is 1655hrs. You get to learn a bit the Anzac spirit.
Amazing trip to Australia and especially visit this winged friends and family
One of the most peaceful and beautiful places in Canberra is the Hall of Remembrance, visit it late in the afternoon to avoid the crowds
Do a gouided tour, excellent knowledge and a great way to get an overview of so much information.
You could take pictures in the exhibition hall! Something rare for museums
Kids area is great
There is the ceremony every day at 5pm.
Plan on spending at least half a day, new WWI section is great
There's a tip about skippong the tour and wandering yourself. While I agree, if you manage both it's even better. Two different experiences, with their own benefits.
The Last Post Ceremony daily at 16:55 #lastpost
Poppy's, the cafe at the Australian War Memorial is a great place to start or finish your experience. Coffee and good was Fabius and quick to the table and service was great too
Guided tours take 90 mins - free
Watch for the Bunnies! They are pretty CUTE!!! ;-))))
There is a lot to see so take your time to wonder through
The lockers in the research centre cost $2.
Hauntingly beautiful war memorial and museum of Australian involvement in diverse wars throughout history, since the WWI - a must see...
Awesome. Did the tour which gave us a good basis for seeing more. On problem was we never made it back. If you want to visit give yourself 3+ hours to explore.
Skip the tour. Watch the shows. There's one every hour at the hour. Spare 3 hours minimum to truly enjoy it. Catch the closing ceremony at 5pm.
This place is bigger than expected. Join the free orientation tour
Обалденный музей! Хотя я не любитель истории, но здесь жутко интересно!
