The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive, and is perhaps one of Australia's most important memorials and a must do for those visiting Canberra.
The Australian War Memorial's aim is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.
In 1948, Charles Bean summed up the memorial's mission and purpose: Here is their spirit, in the heart of the land they loved; and here we guard the record which they themselves made.
