National Vietnam Veterans Museum

The National Vietnam Veterans Museum (NVVM) is a unique Museum.  Founded and built by Vietnam veterans to help and support veterans to cope better with their experiences during the Vietnam War (1962-1975) and after their return to Australia, the NVVM seeks to remember, interpret and relate the experience of the veterans of the Vietnam era and the enduring impact of the war on society.

In 2014 the museum enters its second year as an independent museum.  The museum has  embarked on an ambitious program of rejuvenation to enhance  the visitor experience and further strengthen our links to the wider Vietnam veteran community …read our CEO's message here.
