National Anzac Centre
In November 2014 the Australian and New Zealand Prime Ministers opened the National Anzac Centre (NAC), a milestone project aimed at creating a museum to commemorate the Anzacs of the First World War.
The Western Australian Museum, in partnership with the Australian War Memorial, were responsible for researching and developing unique and creative content for the NAC, for both the physical museum in Albany Heritage Park, Western Australia, and its online presence.
As a result, an immersive experience is offered to visitors. The NAC follows the personal stories of 32 Anzac-related characters, from soldiers to nurses, many of whom departed from the Port of Albany. Their lives can be followed from pre-war life and recruitment through conflict in Gallipoli, the Middle East and on the Western Front, to post-war life.
The NAC in Albany presents these Anzac stories through interactive media, artefacts, photographs, film, and audio. Visitors have the opportunity to leave their own thoughts and messages via a Tribute Wall, which are shared both at the NAC and online.
