  • I have driven past this museum many times, and now I have finally visited. Really worth stopping and exploring the exhibits. Friendly volunteer staff are very helpful. Allow around 2 hours.  more »
  • Fantastic museum with plenty to see for all members of the family. Plenty of vehicle and aircraft on show along with weapons and accompanying stories. Good cafe and gift shop too.  more »
  • $15 entry - well put together and a fair bit to see. The audio-visual display in the tent was a good way to start the visit. Rare war medals upstairs.  more »
