Once we step foot into the museum compound, the kids can't help running here and there pointing at cannons, mortars, tanks,...It needs half a day to completely digest all the war AU has involved.

Not far out of Fremantle itself, it is not a large museum considering the wars it covers but it is cheap enough to get in with some interesting exhibits, having said that they could do with some serious donations. The paper mache life size figures leave a lot to be desired, they really do look quite ill !! The volunteers... More

Some small time military museums can be somewhat dire. However this one was a surprise. Out on the quadrangle are a slew of military vehicles and artillery pieces and they alone are enough to reel in the military history buff. But beyond that is the bulk of the collection which is gallery upon gallery of displays of Australias military history.... More

What a great way to spend 2 hours on any afternoon, The staff are friendly and very well informed, Its not on the same scale as the Canberra war museum but there is plenty to see right from the moment you enter the Parade area which boasts an array of military vehicles. There is a small gift shop and wheel... More

This museum is a credit to the volunteers and staff who a preserving WA's links to our military past (and also the present), in a very thoughtful and informative way. My one tip would be to allow plenty of time for your visit as there is such a lot to see. You will be escorted by a friendly tour guide,... More

The Army Museum of WA is situated in the former Artillery Barracks in the port city of Fremantle. It is a beautiful and atmospheric building, open from Wednesday to Sunday and is manned by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers. On opening days there are major pieces of equipment on display on the old parade ground where there is also ample free... More

I visted the museum when I was over visiting from Scotland and found the museum an excellent attraction. The guides and curators where all friendly and really helpful. I'd advise this as an excellent day out for military history buffs.

Great attraction for anyone with an interest in history or the military or both! Located in Fremantle, the museum is set in the grounds of the old barracks. What was once the parade ground now hosts the array of military vehicles, including tanks and the like. If you have the time the museum has the place to kill an hour... More

The new display galleries are fantastic, showcasing what our Aussie diggers are doing around the world. A well worth visit for families and especially for kids to see what is happening elsewhere. The voluntary guides certainly know their history and really want to promote the military heritage that we have here.
