Veterans' Affairs
The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive. The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war or on operational service and those who have served our nation in times of conflict. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.
