Adding a name to the Welcome Wall involves a tax deductible gift of $500 to the museum that will go towards preserving our Australian maritime and migration heritage.

Gift idea: Why not buy an inscription on the wall for that family member who has everything? Our holiday special includes a gift pack with an official certificate of registration and a presentation folder. For more information contact the Welcome Wall team on (02) 9298 3777.
