It seems the WW1 saga has worn out the AWM with many of the outdoor exhibits either poorly maintained or shabby. All the same, the avenue of memorials is a must visit. The internal displays (except for WW1 and Afghanistan) are good but very superficial...More

Outstanding memorial to all Australians in military service from the Boer War to Afghanistan. School groups are plentiful but respectful. Plan on 4 hours to really enjoy the experience.
