  • Beautifully presented collection in the home of the Australian produced military rifles. Staff are exceptional, venue facilities are clean and above all, the place feels just right. I'm truly impressed and am already planning a return trip. If you're in the ADF, you owe it to yourself to see this place, as well as the rising sun display.
  • The best publicly viewable display of firearms in Australia if not the southern hemisphere. Worth the trip to Lithgow on it's own. The staff are extremely helpful, they will give you a tour, ju├čt ask.
  • An exceptional exhibition documenting the history of such an important production facility. The display of weaponary must be as good as you could see anywhere.
  • Not just for gun enthusiasts. Ask one of the staff to show you around and you will learn so much not only about the guns but the people that made them, the life at the factory, and the people who donated their collections to be displayed. Spent over 2 hours there talking and learning, could be done a lot quicker if you're in a rush but you can make it last as long as you want with best part of a thousand pieces on display.
  • Display & history of items is excellent. Wear an overcoat in winter while viewing displays.
