Our Displays

Our collection includes some of the rarest memorabilia associated with World War II.

We have the only assembled Catalina Flying Boat on display in Australia along with a range of other aircrafts, machinery, vehicles, components and photographs.

With over 500 items on display, we have captured a true glimpse of life during World War II.

We also have interactive displays and audio presentations which tell the stories of Australia's historical military history.
