The Treloar Technology Centre is the purpose-built, off-site storage and conservation facility for the Australian War Memorial’s National Collection. Housing hundreds of thousands of objects ranging in size from lapel pins to heavy bomber aircraft with four-engines, Memorial staff encounter unique logistical and museological situations every day.

Step behind the scenes and hear from the Memorial’s Registrar about how Memorial staff work to preserve and store the significant National Collection.
