We have visited this museum before with our grandson. He wanted to go again and we were not dissapointed. Good commentary from our guide and lots of interesting exhibits to look at, including of course, large pieces of machinery. Well done!

Dominated by exhibits of the 1st & 2nd World Wars. Disappointed with displays of more contemporary conflicts from Vietnam onwards in terms of size & quality of displays Can be a bit overwhelming but brilliant for amateur military history enthusiasts

Went there last week & it was closed. Had checked the Website for opening times. No warning, before I driove my grandsons twenty kilometres to get there, that it would be closed. Imagine the response from the disapointed boys! Not happy Granny😠

Second best military museum in Australia, a hidden gem! The displays and vehicles were extraordinary, made all the better with the volunteer guides to explain how each war involved not only Australian but also the West Australian service personnel.

unfortunately I cant remember a particular exhibit purely focusing on the bands as the exhibits are set up within the theaters of each war.
