Victoria’s ex-service organisations hold significant collections of memorabilia that tell the story of Victorians during and after war.


Five Victorian ex-service organisations were selected to participate in the Collections Training Program, following an expression of interest process in 2016.

Museums Australia (Victoria) staff members are providing each of these groups with ten days of intensive support and training. The tailored program will assist members of ex-service organisations to protect and preserve their memorabilia collections, with a focus on digitisation. Their records will be catalogued and published online using Victorian Collections. You can follow their progress and browse the collections here as they’re uploaded.
