There are three gallery spaces located in the under croft at Anzac Square Memorial Galleries, underneath the Shrine of Remembrance and adjacent to the park.
The World War I Memorial Crypt and World War II Gallery draw on State Library’s large heritage collections. The digital exhibition will provide visitors with a deep and powerful interactive engagement with the experiences of individuals, military units, towns and cities from all around Queensland.
The Post World War II Memorial and Exhibition Gallery provides an outstanding opportunity to highlight newly commissioned audio-visual collection content such as digital stories, to encourage a deeper understanding of the sacrifice and contribution of Queenslanders post-Second World War, as well as how we remember now and into the future.
Tours are not offered on public holidays, Anzac Day and Remembrance Day and may be limited during busy periods.
- Available Days: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
