Architectus has been appointed to design the new National Vietnam Veterans Museum. This project will provide recognition and acclaim as Australia’s only national museum dedicated to Vietnam Veterans with the stories of soldiers and veterans at the centre of exhibitions. The Museum will provide an environment for visitors to reflect on and connect with this important chapter in our history through a collection of objects displayed thoughtfully within a purpose built home on Phillip Island.

A large object display will be a major drawcard feature of the main exhibition space. It will showcase restored aircraft and vehicles, including the Canberra bomber and a Huey Helicopter. The central theme will be focused on the experiences of Australian Vietnam Veterans supported through the large objects and display of significant memorial items and personal effects.

Incorporating indoor and outdoor visitor amenities including commemorative spaces and retail and food offerings, the building will be integrated within the site and overlook the existing wetlands.

This precinct will attract local, interstate and international visitors to enjoy an educational and enriching experience.
