To truly appreciate John Monash, and more than 46,000 Australians who gave their lives for us out here on the Western Front – we need to stretch the boundaries of our imagination and see this landscape as they did.Prime Minister of Australia the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP
We cannot relive these stories ,.. the mud, the rats, the lice, the gas, the shellfire, the fallen comrades — we can never truly imagine what it was like. So we must tell them. We must show them — again and again. Show it with the help of modern technology, without taking our eyes off the names etched onto the memorial — names which are real, not virtual.Prime Minister of France Édouard Philippe
The new $100 million Sir John Monash Centre … a marvel of high-tech with video screens that cover entire walls… Here, visitors gain an immersive experience of the war though extraordinary visual displays and the words of soldiers beamed direct to mobile phones via an app. It is an experience unlike any other ‘museum’.Tony Wright, The Age Newspaper Sat July 21, 2018.
This memorial museum is incredible. The innovative use of technology to facilitate an utterly immersive experience sets the centre apart from others of its kind.Visitor review, Facebook
