  • Definitely a must for the history of Australia. You will be speechless if you stands for. Grand scale, and it commands respect. Many Act walking up to the building. But also if you go to the basement. All together worth a nice walk in the area.

  • Dedicated to the Sacrifices made by ordinary Australians in all Theatres, and on all fronts. From the First World War, through to today. Incorporated a informative and interesting visitors centre underneath. Well worth a visit. For international visitors, please show your respect by remaining quite, and to remove your hat as a sign of respect during your visit.
  • It's an amazing building nice museum and beautiful place and going up stairs to watch the city and Melbourne is highly recommended for all Melbourne people and Melbourne visitors. People who are interested in History specially history of world wars . It’s location is perfect next to the botanical harden . Easy to access by trams and in next couple of years by train as well.
