This museum catalogues quite a fair bit of memorabilia pertaining to the war camps which were set up near Tatura. The material is fascinating - uniforms, stories etc. It also tells the history of the irrigation region.

Good movie giving very interesting background to the PoW interns during WWII. Staff knowledgeable and interested in why we were there - another visitor was sharing his experience as his Grandfather was an intern there. Loads of artefacts to look at, pity it is only open for a couple of hours a day, as you could spend much time reading... More

Wonderful country museum focussing on the WW2 camps in the area that housed POWs and Internees of German, Italian and Japanese backgrounds. Open every afternoon!

A lot of very enthusiastic volunteers are running the museum. It is a lovely place packed with millions of infomations and little things. Presentation of the objects is perfect with attention to details. Don't miss that place while you are in Tatura.

Having researched and written the story of my father's service in the Australian Army during WW2, I was looking for information about the POW camps in the area. The staff were very helpful. I purchased two books, one written by Lurline and Arthur Knee whose knowledge is outstanding. I was able to complete that chapter of my father's "war journey".... More

This museum is very well laid out and the volunteers have an exceptional understanding of part of our history which many would have heard little about. Our group was addressed by a very good speaker, and there was plenty of time to look at all the exhibits. The collections are excellant, and it was well worth a visit-especially for anyone... More

As I local I have driven past this museum many times and like most people planned to visit it one day. Today was that day. I was expecting a small country museum with a couple of displays and to be in and out in 1/2 hour. This is NOT one of those places. The museum is run by local volunteers... More
