Celebrate your heritage on the Welcome Wall at Australian National Maritime Museum

The Welcome wall stands at the Australian National Maritime Museum located in Darling Harbour and stands in honour of those who have migrated to live in Australia. The museum continues to pay tribute to celebrate the diversity of Australian migrants and their journey.
As a multicultural nation with one in four of Australia’s 23 million people born outside Australia, the Welcome Wall is a celebration of diversity. It allows today’s Australians to pay tribute to migrant forebears, family members and friends by having their names inscribed on it. Community members can register their names onto the wall for $150 which is permanently inscribed on bronze panels and stories can be shared through a Virtual Wall. It is now the only museum in Australia which still has capacity for people to register their family names.
The National Maritime Museum unveils new names on the Welcome Wall twice a year. More than 200 countries are represented on the migrant Welcome Wall. Of these 7512 are from England, 3363 from Italy, 1620 from The Netherlands, 1615 from Germany, 1535 from Scotland, 1319 from Ireland and 959 from Greece.
For further information on the Welcome Wall or to register a name, phone (02) 9298 3667 or visit
The Australian National Maritime Museum on Darling Harbour is open daily from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm. For further information call 02 9298 3777 or visit
