  • This is an informative museum about Australian troops in Viet Nam. The film tells the story, the rest of the museum fills this. The museum has an unexpectedly nice collection of great material, including a tank, a bomber and several helicopters.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lots to see and learn about the Vietnam War, and Australia's contribution to the war effort. There is a good projection based presentation (a little man projected into an area containing artefacts featured in the presentation), and a few vehicles to see. A cafe is found in the premises.
  • Really good museum, though a tad small. Love their video show, and love how they're remaking lots of old war vintage vehicles/aircrafts. I'd recommend not getting the portable speaker batten thing, it says exactly what the signs say, and is super slow in reading it out.
  • I visited in 2007 my best part was the deck chair photo (was it 9th division or next to the 2nd division boys) line up of three boys drying out their tools..... I laughed and even fantasised about that for years and I'm a sheila...........'giggle' can I have a copy Lyn from Perth WA and UK
