“Surprising...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This really is a work in progress. After traveling through the US last month and seeing how they do it....this was a lovely surprise. Do yourself a favour and go look at this ltttle museum. Make sure you watch the film in the "tent". It bought me to tears. Love your work guys!!!

“What a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This little museum sitting unassumingly on the Phillip Island Road was a wonderful discovery.

It covers everything on the Vietnam War with a wonderful collection of items from that period, that really brings it to life for those of us fortunate not to have experienced it first hand.

It is manned by a wonderful group of people who are passionate about this war and the role it played in their lives and Australian society in general.

Its well worth a visit if you find yourself with time to kill before seeing the Phillip Island penguins.

“Great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Many people would think this museum might be boring but it is far from it. The dedicated volunteers take the time to show you around and teach you about this amazing time in our quite recent history. Some of the exhibits represent very personal experiences of people involved in the war which makes it all much more accessible.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Great value & a credit to the workers behind the scene. This brought to the front about the truths of a war that many say we shouldn't have been in, a great tribute to those who served our country.
