  • For all you Vietnam War fans, there's a great military museum hidden away on Phillip Island. Loads of equipment, uniforms and incredible collection of vehicles including a Cobra attack helicopter, a Huey, and many more. I was amazed at the huge assortment of vehicles that they have in their collection. The owners are a very friendly couple who are very dedicated to their museum and are passionate about the history in their care. Truly a hidden gem here on Phillip Island.
  • Great museum! Really interesting displays. Even my two toddlers enjoyed seeing everything the museum had to offer
  • Well organised museum with full of war's facilities. Felt hurt during my visiting as seen human's patents were used for killing people.
  • The "Audio tour" was average, but the "Sound a lights" show was exceptional. Good variety of material and displays.
  • Excellent exhibits. Great informative staff. Will be back again as there is so much to take in. Great day out for the whole family. Highly reccomend
