I walked in with no expectations, and the museum is pretty great. It looks similar to the Abraham Lincoln memorial (in the USA) but on a smaller scale. However, there is an actual museum underneath with four entrances at each corner and the entire underside...More

An emotional and very moving place to remember and be reminded of the sacrifice so many Australians went through for our country. It is beautifully designed. You can also get a nice view looking back over Melbourne. Definitely worth the visit!

Every visitor to Melbourne should find time to walk to the Shrine of Remembrance. It is a wonderful structure commemorating all those who fought for their country and gave their lives in war. The interior is wonderfully laid out and there are ex-servicemen who act...More

I was walking through the area and heard an announcement for a presentation in the Shrine. It was very informative and the guide was extremely enthusiastic and the reenactment of the light passing the shrine. Definitely worth a visit.
