The Memorial has an active lending program that sees our collection items form part of exhibitions in other museums, shrines and cultural institutions. Below is a list of current significant items currently on loan, and where you can see them around Australia and internationally. If you would like additional information on the Memorial's outward loans program please view the National Collection loans page.
The Menin Gate Lions, which can normally be seen at the internal entrance of the Memorial in Canberra, are temporarily in their original home in the city of Ieper (Ypres) in Belgium as part of commemorations of the First World War. The Menin Gate lions will return to the Memorial after Remembrance Day 2017.
