    One of the best museums on war history in the world. A lot of historical artefacts and other primary sources on all the wars and peacekeeping missions Australia has been in.

    The recently renovated WWI exhibition is a truly immersive and emotional experience. A fitting tribute to those who served.

    Some may not know but most of the British allied troops defending Singapore against the Japanese during WWII are Australians under British command. Those who survive became Prisoners of War in Changi.

    Wonderful place to visit. Feel humble & grateful to those involved in war & peacekeeping. Displays are world class and the kids really enjoyed finding out about what great -granddad did in the war.

    A must see for all Australians. Never a glorification of war but a commemoration of the sacrifices made by Australian men and women.
