The members and memorabilia of Victoria’s ex-service organisations form an integral part of our cultural heritage legacy and tell us important stories about everyday Australians’ experiences of war.

From 2016, Museums Australia (Victoria) will work closely with the veterans’ community to ensure that these stories are not lost. Funded by the Veterans Branch, Victorian Government, selected ex-service groups will receive intensive training in collections care, cataloguing and oral history from museum professionals.

Here, you can follow the progress of the project, browse their collections and listen to their oral histories.
