Our Memorial is the centre of national commemoration for Australia’s involvement in conflict, telling the stories of Australia’s service men and women and their experiences in war and, more recently, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations. However, the stories of the 100,000 Australian veterans who have served over the past three decades remain mostly untold.
Through transforming our galleries and renewing our exhibition spaces, we will have the capacity to tell these stories to ensure our Memorial continues to be a place to honour, to learn and to heal.
There will be quiet spaces in the galleries, allowing veterans and their families space away from crowds for respite and reflection. Our most iconic displays will return, ensuring our history continues to be understood by all generations of Australians.
