“Wonderful tribute to the Diggers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Another must see for museum goers. It tells the history of the Australia's armed forces and has heaps of info on many of the battles they fought in. The vies from the top are quite spectaculer. There is a sombre athmosphere here and rightly so. A great tribute to the fallen.

“very reverential place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Brilliant! Great views across the Botanic Gardens to the CBD, but also, a magnificent memorial to those lost through war. Go at the end of the day (5pm) and watch the small ceremony as the Last Post is sounded and the flags are lowered.

“An unforgetable and moving experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I was visiting the Shrine of Remembrance and was invited to hear about the Shrine and the Remembrance commemoration by the guide after which he replicated the Remembrance day experience by having a recording of the last post to be played and then for a shaft of light to shine on the tablet 'Greater love hath no man' as it would be on 11th hour,11th day 11th month.It was such a moving experience,I felt very priviledged.

“Great Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Well crafted building and architecture. in the inside of the building we can see a diorama of the sacrifice of the fighters. Eternal flame that is always burning is the front of the building. From the front we can see a very beautiful Melbourne cityscape.
