I spent a very quick 3.5 hours here and probably didnt see or take in a quarter of what was on show.

The place is immense and very well run but paid staff and volunteers. My partner and I took advantage of one of the free tours and then went off and did some exploring on our own.

Must see for anyone in Canberra.

You don't have to be Australian to get much out of a visit! Very interesting, humbling and peaceful but such a shame there have been wars that we have such memorials!

Love visiting the AWM! I have been so many times and I always find something new to learn about. Great for kids too. Lots of interactive things to do. Be there at the closing ceremony. Definitely a must when in Canberra.

Loved the War Memorial, spent the whole day there and had to go back the following morning just to squeeze everything in. It was fantastic and amazing. The tours are wonderful and very informative. Great day for the family.
