“War Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This museum is well looked after and does full justice to the war in Northern Africa during the second world war. Purists may find Arabic translations off-putting but it is clear to see everything and both axis and allies are well represented. The vehicles and armaments outside are of much interest as well.

“A bit lame”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

For a place that owes so much to the Australian's there is very very little in the museum about the Aussies. Its like they were never there. That needs to be fixed. It was an old looking museum, I mean its like it got set up in 1970 and not worked on since then. The highlight is the war machines around the museum. They were quite a treat.

“Poignant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Very moving - make sure that you sign the register, near the gate. The more visitors who sign the register the more teh Commonwealth War Graves Commission will know that their work is appreciated.

“small museum but worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

There is nothing to dislike about this museum although small it has enough to let you realise what was a very tragic war which killed thousands of young men.

“To Pay Homage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This is a must for all ANZACS and Brits as it was one of the turning points of the second world war and a tribute the immense bravery of the young soldiers involved. The adjioning war cemetary is a must,spend time and reflect on the enormous loss of life.
