The Griffith War Memorial Museum owes its existence to the returned servicemen from WWI who became soldier-settlers in Griffith. They had the foresight to have the Crown Land dedicated as a war memorial. After WWII the returned soldiers, sailors, airmen and their families expressed a wish to establish a fitting memorial to those who served. It has only been possible to establish the museum because of their and their offspring's commitment to remember the sacrifices that were made during the time of war.
The objective of the Griffith War Memorial Museum Inc is to display items of military interest and aspects of the social history linked to military operations of ex-servicemen and women and their families from Griffith and districts.
The museum aims to achieve this by displaying photos, audio and DVD resource material, stories, clothing, weapons and other military artefacts.
