The Soldiers Memorial Institute Military Museum has recently been relaunched in its newly revitalised building. Permanent displays have a focus on remembrance and honouring the central Victorian experience of war and peacekeeping.

There is a program of exhibitions in the new wing which changes throughout the year.

Current Temporary Exhibitions:

Robert Milton – Military Artist: Bendigo’s Continuing Contribution to the Australian Defence Force. 
Robert Milton was deployed to the Gulf War, Iraq and Northern Ireland. He worked as a Senior Instructor at Sandhurst before joining the Australian Army as a Sniper Supervisor in 2007.

Injuries sustained in Iraq were exacerbated requiring him to leave the Army in 2010. Robert obtained work as a Forensic Photographer for the Department of Transport and the Victoria Police while undertaking further medical treatment and finally having to retire from working.

Robert has found art has been the perfect rehabilitation following a diagnosis of chronic PTSD and now teaches art at the Bendigo District RSL.
Judith Leman sculptures present a visual narrative of horses leaving Australia, being transported to Egypt, suffering in harsh conditions and charging into battle. The saddest 'last goodbye' emphasises a soldier's grief at returning to Australia without his horse.

Eleven – Commemorating the Australian Light Horse World War One.
Judith Leman has created a series of bronze sculptures in recognition of the vital role played by horses in the First World War. The artist has family links to central Victorian town, Tarnagulla and the Light Horse. 

Judith’s sculptures present a visual narrative of horses leaving Australia, being transported to Egypt, suffering in harsh conditions and charging into battle.  The saddest 'last goodbye' emphasises a soldier's grief at returning to Australia without his horse.
