  • Had an awesome time. 3 of us took a tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. The facilities are well laid out and in chronological order from the first days of settlement. Particularly enjoyed the West Australian references. The security guard had some great stories about his time in Singapore, loved it. Well worth the nearly 3hrs we spent there.
  • So much knowledge and work goes into this place. The staff is amazing
  • Fabulous place and people. Thank you to our guide today, Peter. Wonderful and memorable few hours. Lest we forget.
  • It's really good, very worthwhile to go. Some great pieces that actually saw battle. However they are now only allowed to open for guided tours and very restricted hours, which makes it very inconvenient. Hopefully the rules will change next year and they will open as normal.
  • Great staff The guide tour is excellent and very details information But please prepare the passport or ID card before going to their
