    Interesting and informative
    The Anzac centre is an great place where you can learn of individual journeys through the WW1 experience. The recorded messages add a personal perspective to the history and having a particular person and following their journey adds a unique view of the war. It is well worthwhile to do and an amazing opportunity to learn of what occurred during this time.

    Profound and moving
    Having visited the battlefields of Northern France/Belgium several years ago and seen where many young Australians ended their lives in WWI, it was particularly poignant to see where many departed Australian shores for the last time when the war began. It was my second visit to the National ANZAC Centre but I was just as affected this time. The displays and clever use of technology handle the subject matter extremely well. A very worthwhile place to visit and a very touching memorial to those who left and never came home, and those who returned forever changed.

    Could have spent alll day, here, what an amazing tribute, exhibition to the ANZACS. So much to see and do. the displays are so detailed and informative, Loved the scan to listen and interactive displays. Lots to walk around and experience too. An amazing place not to be missed. Unfortunately the Cafe not open all the time so missed out on that experience and had leave to go back to town for a coffee. We could have come back as the ticket allowed us all day viewing.

    Sobering but informative visit
    Everyone coming into the centre is given a card with a person who served in the war on it. You can follow their journey around the exhibit from enlistment to life after the war. The exhibit has been well thought out and has some interesting spaces to contemplate what happened to all those young men so long ago. Recommended for anyone who wants to understand what our ANZACs endured and why we remember their sacrifice every April 25.

    An evocative display
    The National Anzac Centre is a remarkable monument acknowledging the last staging post before sailing to the Middle East for convoys. The displays are very informative and the two main digital explanations are a great way to engage the viewer. The views across the sound and harbour are evocative, however there is so much emotion it is hard to spend much more than an hour.

    Touching tribute to those who left Albany to fight
    A brilliant memorial to all of the service men and women who left the shores of Australia to fight, many never to return again, either alive or well. A fantastic balance of historic detail and storytelling. Four hours flew by. Followed by a wonderful lunch at the facility restaurant.

    Albany ANZAC Museum
    I visited the museum today and was very surprised by the size. The actual museum is indoors and well layed out. They have a lot of media and IT that is easy to use and provides amazing information. Inside the museum they also have volunteers that wonder to assist and answer any questions. Outside they have ships guns, torpedoes, gun pits, coastal defences, amazing scenery of the bays, coast. Absolutely worth a visit. To note they off any serving or Ex Defence member a very generous discount. The gift shop also offers a lot of items to make your trip memorable.

this place is a unique glimpse into our heritage. All who were involved should be so proud of this centre from the layout to the historical records and interactive displays. I spent the whole day at the grounds which links into the heritage center so well. to imagine all those men ,women and animals on all those ships in that bay absolutely breath taking

The experience itself was very good, however there are two things I thought worth mentioning. 1. The booking system online is misleading - when you book and pay it offers only one time of 9.00am. The staff member I asked when I attended the site at 9am the next day said your ticked is valid all day and that the time option on the site is a problem they are aware of but apparently unable to resolve. 2. Not so big a deal but the price - at $25 it won't break the bank and it's a sonbre and imersive experience. I thought it odd that for a historic/cultural venue the cosy was above what I expected. I will say I don't know if it's privately funded or a government memorial - If private, the WA government should be ashamed and chip in - and if its the second, easy up on the fees a bit for a ANZAC memorial.

I found the Anzac centre disappointing as it is a thoroughly modern museum using too much hi tech and not enough of the people. The idea is that you take a card and follow the story of a particular person through their experience of the First World War. You got to access computer screens to access the info and certain points in the museum. There was also films running on loops and auditory sections. It is well done for what it is, but I find I get more from looking at artefacts from real people eg the rations packs or the field medical packs, the toys of the children in one of the fort buildings. That’s how I feel involved in the lives of the individuals. Too modern and fancy for my taste which feels lacking in soul.

I can’t believe they ran out of Anzac biscuits at the Garrison cafe on the site of the National Anzac Memorial Centre.
Appalling crowd management - far too many people allowed in at once for a very solemn place of remembrance and reflection.
The exhibition was excellent but experience compromised by undisciplined crowds.

We found the exhibits to be incredibly moving. I loved following one soldier’s experience. Also was very moved by film clips, 100 stories, and the the memorial roster of those who served. Thank you for an excellent visit. Learned so much!

Great tribute to the ANZACS. The unique Follow a Soldier concept is both entertaining and educational. The soundtrack of soldiers marching is hauntingly moving and emotional. Respect!
