EDUCATION MATTERS !!
Griffith War Memorial Museum offers tours for school groups and
other interested parties. We usually present a general overview of the
museum and its purpose, as well as pointing out items of interest such as
artefacts, examples of trench art, photo collections, dvds
on World Wars I, II, Vietnam etc.
We suggest students might like to bring their own cameras as previous groups
have enjoyed trying on a variety of uniforms, hats and equipment and then
taking pictures with friends. We offer activity sheets such as “search and find”, “find a word” and crosswords,
colouring in sheets and flags, as well as lists of Honour Roll soldiers'
names to match with Griffith Street names. If people know the name and unit
of a relative who volunteered from Griffith or the area, they can search for
their details in our display books or use our Nominal
Roll menu on this website.
You can… book a visit with us (“Contact us” ) and we suggest if you have a particular topic of interest you are
studying and give us sufficient notice, we can try to arrange a veteran to
speak to your group.
If your group is local, you would probably find it useful to come in to the
museum yourself to become familiar with the layout and what is on offer and
discuss how we could better help you. If you prepared an assignment or
questionnaire for your group in advance, we could possibly post it on our
website so students could complete it when they returned home from their
