    Such lovely people that run this amazing display. The establishment is clean. There is a lift that takes you up to the 2nd floor so its fully disability friendly.  more »

    If you're into your history or have family members who served, the National Vietnam Veteran's Museum in Philip Island is well worth the visit. It may not look like much from the entrance - a small gif...  more »

    The unassuming entry leads you into a wonderfully display of Vietnam war history. The auto visual display is very clever and a must. The onsite cafe is also lovely with home baked yummy goodies  more »

    What a wonderful museum to visit with the family. The volunteers were so welcoming and informative. They even allowed the kids to hop into the helicopter to take photos. The kids were given a scanning device that made it more interactive for them. A great place to visit to gain a better understanding of what the veterans and people of the time all went through.

    Sound and light show that went a long way to explain our involvement in the Vietnam war, it also brought me to tears. The displays are incredible and very detailed. Congratulations to all involved, so many volunteer hours to educate us all.

    An interesting place to learn about history. Vietnam war was damaging for both sides and the museum has captured and educated people on multi perspectives :)

    Fabulous exhibition that not only includes aircraft, tanks, armaments and vehicles used in the Vietnam War but also interesting examples of more 'mundane' items like rations, cooking utensils etc. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the museum provides great insight into the experiences of our Vietnam veterans.

    A great education for an immigrant to Australia and probably for all Australians.
