We absolutely loved this museum. I wasn’t sure what to expect coming here but I was pleasantly surprised. The WWI and WW2 exhibits were exceptional and the Korea/Vietnam exhibit was interesting as well. My children loved the interactive activities and the staff taught us so...More

A wonderful historical display of the Kennedy Regiment and its descendant Units housed in the old Headquarters of the 31st Battalion RQR. I recommend it to the past CMF members of the 31st Battalion.

A great little museum. It depends what you are interested in. Some people would just whip around and have a look at all the things. I like to read stories about people and found this difficult as the people who worked there kept interrupting me...More

I often pop in here with friends who visit Townsville,....and I always find something that has been tweaked. It is a great setting at the old army barracks, and the displays are very informative - without glorifying war too much. At the end, you can...More
