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. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.
The Memorial consists of three sub-programs: National Collection, Public Programs and Corporate Services. See the Organisation Chart for further details.
The Memorial is a member of the Council of Australasian Museum Directors.
