  • It was a nice place but we were allowed to walk around without a guide so we couldnt look at everything we wanted to or take our time
  • Artillery barracks was the first places I was posted to in 1990. Museum is awesome so much Wa army service history. A must see.
  • Closed and no notification on any web page aswell as the map location page still says they were open.
  • A facility full of parking bays inside the venue which no one (except volunteers) are allowed to use, pissing off the residents in the street that mostly have on-street parking only.
  • Amazing place to visit great prices and learn so much about history
