Great loved the kids discovery centre. Guided tour was directly to all in the party from young children to parents. Very informative and would definitely recommend it for families and a chance for children to see it when not on a formal school excursion.

spent 5 hours here. Not enough time to see everything. Could have done with 2 days. All the staff were extremely helpful. Two cafes on site to take a break.

This is needless to say a very special place to visit. The current exhibition of the photographs of the Lost Diggers of Vignacourt has to be seen. The photographs are extremely special and in surprisingly god condition given the age of the glass negatives from which they have been taken. That the Memorial also has the associated artifacts - the backdrop used for many of the photographs and the wooden chest the plates were stored in for so many years - is also remarkable and provides a complete collection.

This was the particular purpose of our recent visit but can also highly recommend the other parts of the Memorial.
