A defining time in the history of Vietnam and Australia, the Vietnam War and its legacy is still felt today - the experiences live through stories, memories, and recollections of powerful imagery and emotions from survivors, convey a time of turmoil, uncertainty, struggle and hope. These stories and memories of a generation are precious, and should not be forgotten.

The Vietnamese Museum of Australia in Footscray, Victoria, seeks to commemorate this legacy for future generations, and to embody a physical emblem of hope - of a journey to a new land.
