Australian War Memorial
Its exhibitions present stories of Australians at war, in armed conflict and during peacekeeping activities.
With its ceremonial areas, extensive exhibitions and research facilities, the Memorial has, since the present facility was opened in 1941, become a significant and important part of the National Capital.
The focus of commemoration is the Hall of Memory, together with the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier, the Pool of reflection and the Roll of Honour, that lists the names of more than 102,000 Australian servicemen and women who have died in war. Almost a million visitors annually now visit the facility. Each gallery contains magnificently presented relics, artworks, photographs and personal items that help define Australia and Australians.
