  • It’s been nine year since our last visit. The displays are clear and informative. Volunteers are friendly and can talk to you about the exhibits. Thanks to all that donate memorabilia to be displayed.  more »
  • A well run by volunteers with a good exhibition. So sad to read the stories and the multimedia presentation is cleverly done.  more »

  • Wonderful museum. Make sure you watch the sound/light show for a quick (18min) run down on Australias involvement. Volunteer vets are very friendly and helpful.
  • Thoroughly interesting exhibits, staffed by warm and friendly vets who are great with kids. A good two or more hours required to take in all the exhibits. πŸ‘πŸ»
  • Awesome experience seeing this fabulous display of a little known part of our national history, i'll be back soon to see everything I missed first time around. Fantastic staff, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
  • 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.
