  • Display & history of items is excellent. Wear an overcoat in winter while viewing displays.
  • 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.
  • Needs a tour guide, but it's got great examples of Boer war -> current weapons.
  • Brilliant tour guide a real piece of history and huge collection of small arms
  • Awsom collection of small arms used throughout history mainly military based. Also a history lesson as to the other uses of the Lithgow Small Arms factory, as it was not always producing Small Arms. Worth a look to find out a bit of Australian history.
