  • One of the best military museums I've ever been to. There's so much on display that it would definitely take multiple visits to feel like you've appreciated it all. Incredible artifacts on display that will interest anybody. The tours are mandatory from what I understand, but the guides are brilliant and a absolute trove of information! Well worth the $12 fee. Don't miss out this museum on your visit.
  • Amazing I went with my whole family ranging from 5moths old to 61yrs old and everyone in between enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you to all the volunteer that spend there day explaining the whole museum as u go along the journey.
  • Huge collection of original and authentic equipment, firearms, guns, uniforms, vehicles and other exhibits. Very well maintained and engages all the senses. There is even a recreated WW1 allied trench in the basement level! Highly informative exhibits with detailed writeups, maps, videos and realistic props. Something for everyone of all ages! Don't forget to pick up a souvenir from the gift shop as well!
  • It was a nice place but we weren't allowed to walk around without a guide so we couldn't look at everything we wanted to or take our time
  • A must place to visit. Great overview of thestres of war, where Australians served. Gteat displays.
