  • A lovely surprise. The 20 minute video at the start was informative and then we explored the museum and finally the bunker.
  • I really enjoyed the visit. There was a twenty minute video showing some old film footage which was cool. There is an actual Catalina plane inside the building and heaps of other old interesting bits and pieces. The staff were really friendly and helpful and they sell souvenirs. Plenty to see here.
  • Very educational, a great place to take kids to learn about the war.

  • Specially drove via Lake Boga to see this museum. Shame I couldn't go in, the volunteer wouldn't let my bobby companion dog in, waved at a cage with wire floor...

Just because there happens to be a kitchen located in the same building does not mean dogs are not allowed, I wish people would educate themselves better. But sometimes not worth the discussion.
