Temporary Closure - Shrine of Remembrance
In response to the spread of COVID-19, the Chief Executive Officer of Victoria's Shrine of Remembrance, Mr Dean Lee, has announced that the Shrine has closed its doors to public access - effective immediately and until further notice.
“Heightened anxiety and perceptions of risk amongst our patrons and personnel, reinforced by decisions by Museums Victoria, the State Library and NGV, have caused us to conclude that closure is in the best interests of the Shrine, our staff, volunteers and patrons.” said Mr Lee.
The 2020 Anzac Day Dawn Service will proceed in some form however it is likely Victorians will be asked to commemorate on this important day by watching the Service on television, or via the Shrine's Facebook or Youtube channel.
The Shrine of Remembrance will be closed to the public until further notice.
