CANBERRA | The Australian War Memorial is a museum, shrine, and archive in Canberra commemorating the sacrifice of Australians who have died in war. It opened in 1941 and consists of three areas – the Commemorative Area (shrine) including the Hall of Memory with the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier, the Memorial’s galleries (museum) and Research Centre (records).

The Memorial is large, and despite only containing approximately 5% of the Memorial’s collection, still requires at least a full day to see properly. The upper level is dedicated primarily to World War I and World War II, while the lower level focuses on other wars like the Vietnam War, Boer War, War in Afghanistan, and the Korean War. ANZAC Hall contains several pieces of large military equipment, while the Hall of Valour, has on display 76 of the 100 Victoria Crosses awarded to Australian soldiers.

Outside the Memorial building is the Shrine, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Hall of Honour, which contains the names of over 102,000 Australians who have died in war, and the Sculpture Garden.
