  • This is an excellent detour if you are in the blue mountains. Fully staffed by volunteers but clearly needs more support. Shame the factory is off limits.  more »

  • This place has an amazing collection of small arms and the parallel art, photography, and poster displays provide an interesting window into Australia and the lives of the factory workers over the period that the factory operated, which was most the 20th century. The displays are meticulously presented and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful correspondence between the diligence and precision of this museum and the efforts of the factory it records.
  • Worth the money. Great history lesson for our kids. And the building it's self was awesome to see. It would be awesome if you could walk through it.
  • One of the greatest collection of small firearms I have ever had the pleasure to spend hours just admire. A great place to visit
  • Very informative volunteers. More than rifles and small arms were made there. Reasonably priced entry so good value. Allow at least 2 hours.
  • A great collection of the various small arms and other precision engineered products produced at the facility. Also an extensive collection of pistols donated from a private collection. In addition to the collection the history of the facility is well documented through photos, stories and paintings produced by workers and local people. Sure to be enjoyed by those interested in history, engineering and firearms.
