“Good value”

Spent a great afternoon at the army museum, it is housed in the old barracks and very interesting. The staff were very friendly and informative - recommended. The collection of vehicles, artillary and tanks out the front is excellent.

“Army Museum of WA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

THE WA Army museum is housed in one of the old Federation buildings in Fremantle. There is a new exhibit on the top floor which shows the different theatres of war from Boer war to Afganastan. Very good. There is also a nice collection of medals on the lower floor with information on the soldiers who waas awarded the medals.

“Great for history buffs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This little Army Museum is a great visit for kids. The volunteers share their stories from their days in the service. The museum doesn't quite have the same level of displays at the Canberra War Museum but it is still worth a visit.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Helpful volunteers. Gives one a true feeling of what war may have been like for the persons there at the time. If you are a military buff, you will love this place. Second only to the War Memorial in Canberra.
