The National Monument is one of the museum's most important and visible tributes to our migration heritage
Today's Australia has been shaped by migration. We've come from all the lands on earth to build this great country.
The museum collects the stories of migrants to Australia, and the National Monument is one of our most important and visible ways of recognising the people behind these stories.
Over 30,000 names already appear on the 84 bronze panels that are joined together and run down the northern promenade of the museum, facing Pyrmont Bay.
Register to be part of the next special ceremony
You can honour a migrant – a loved one, a member of your family, yourself, or a new arrival – on Australia’s National Monument to Migration at the Australian National Maritime Museum.
A donation is a fitting way to honour loved ones who have migrated to Australia and to ensure their personal stories are held in this important national collection.
