The BMM is a living Memorial – it is more than a building or a collection of artefacts, it’s a space where shared memories and stories come together, fostering a deeper understanding of our region’s collective heritage. Our world-class exhibits are designed to be accessible and captivating for visitors of all ages and we host a series of temporary exhibitions, programs, and community events throughout the year in order to engage with the local community. Whether it’s a hands-on workshop or an insightful tour, our experienced guides are committed to creating meaningful connections with the past, inspiring both learning and a sense of community.
The BMM prides itself on offering a program of engaging educational experiences for primary, secondary and tertiary students that are aligned with the national curriculum. Our tailored workshops provide a unique opportunity for students to delve into history, connecting classroom learning with real-world narratives.

Delve deeper into the fascinating history of the BMM with a 45-minute tour led by an experienced Museum Guide or Veteran. Our Group Tours and Workshops are open to any groups of 7 or more people. They can be tailored to the interests of your group and are facilitated by our trained and experienced Museum Guides, who are often Veterans themselves and who can provide a unique perspective on the exhibits. These experiences offer a shared exploration of military history, providing a platform for dialogue and reflection.
