  • It was my first time visiting this place and I was very pleased with how it all went. The tour guides were very friendly and provided us with plenty of information. Would definitely recommend as a place to check out.
  • 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.
  • If you appreciate manufacturing in Australia this is a must see exhibit. Small arm display was extensive and the best I have seen. I would have loved to have a look through the factory. A must see if you are in the district.
  • This place is not safe for women travelling alone.. Unfortunately I found this out first hand and now I just went to warn other women. LADIES BEWARE!
  • Great place to go and spend time browsing all the pistols and rifles and other interesting items. Great range of gifts to chose from also.
