Hay War Memorial High School Museum

The museum is located in the original building of the Hay War Memorial High School which was built in 1923 as both a high school and the town’s war memorial to honour those who served in World War I. It is managed by the Hay War Memorial High School. The collection preserves stories of Hay and District war service and the life of the school.

One of the aims of the museum is to engage school students and young people with their Anzac heritage and to promote greater understanding of this. One such project is a series of video clips about individual Hay service personnel across the twentieth century. Another project is the ongoing development of a photographic record of the many former Hay War Memorial High School students who have joined the armed services, from World War I through to the present.
