  • If you're into museums and the vietnam war, tgis place is perfect for you. The sound and light show is interesting and insightful.
  • Visited there yesterday (17.07.2016) with others from the Glenroy RSL Fishing Club. What a wonderful visit! Never realised just how big the museum was or how much was on display. The video was extremely interesting and gave an opportunity to learn more of what our guys went through. Again thanks for not only a great day but a lesson in military history.
  • Food was fabulous. Fresh and huge variety. I believe it is under new management.
  • Boasting a collection of over 150,000 pieces and run by veterans - worth a couple of hours for those with a passing interest in the Vietnam War; more for buffs or military folk. The Victoria Crosses and their citations, and some of the weaponry (the gunship especially!) were of particular interest.
  • Great place to look at our fallen heros of yesteryear
