National Military Vehicle Museum, Elizabeth

(4.6/5 based on a few reviews on the web)
The Society is one of many Military Vehicle Clubs across Australia and throughout the world and its members are dedicated to the preservation of vehicles that are of military origin. The museum was developed as away of providing undercover storage for the vehicles and at the same time allowing the public to view them.

Opened in August 1993 at the old Messenger Press building at Port Adelaide and now relocated to a group of historic WW2 era buildings within the Defence precinct of Edinburgh Parks this museum is unique number of ways. The majority of the vehicles are privately owned by the Society members and therefore each member is responsible for their own vehicles. In addition the vehicles are not just restored to look at, they are rebuilt to authentic running condition and most are road registered and driven regularly. Military vehicles and items range from the First World War to current times.

  • A very dedicated staff are happy to share their knowledge of the many military exhibits. A must see for those interested in military history.
  • Great historical value. Good number of display vehicles.
  • Great place to go and look at a whole heap of restored military vehicle. Excellent value, and everything works. The collection pretty much has everything on display. Lots of interesting things to discover.
  • I was pretty impressed by this museum of army vehicles. I also suggest going when they take some of the tanks and armoured vehicles out for a spin
  • Not a large museum, but a good variety of vehicles on display, and impressively nearly all of the have been restored to running condition and road registered.
