  • This place is not safe for women travelling alone.. Unfortunately I found this out first hand and now I just want to warn other women. LADIES BEWARE! Surprise surprise! More lies from management below... This place Def needs an over haul In that department.
  • 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.
  • Amazing place. Very helpful volunteers. A real credit to Australia. I'm definitely coming back!!
  • One of the greatest collection of small firearms I have ever had the pleasure to spend hours just admire. A great place to visit
