This state of the art museum helps to tell the story of the Battle of Fromelles and life in the western front trenches. The displays and audio guide are excellent. The stories about individuals who fought at Fromelles are touching. The story is tragic with...More

Nice museum, and a very moving cemetery, lots of interesting things to see. The Memorial Parc, VC Corner Cemetery, the whole region is full of history, Also outside Fromelles there is much history of the Great War to be seen.

We visit Fromelles on a regular basis as my wife's Great Uncle was killed in the battle but his body has never been found. The museum is of great interest and covers the build up to and the actual battle in good detail.

A big plus, especially for my wife, was the AV map of the battle which gave a very good oversight of the battle. We both enjoyed the life size dioramas. They do allow the use of cameras without the flash. (This is true of most...More

This museum was relatively new. The layout and exhibits are excellent. You get a good insight into the Fromelles battle (as much as anyone can who did not fight on the Western Front can) and some of the participants. The museum has a distinct Australian...More

We stopped at this museum as part of a tour group and were impressed at the exhibits that this small museum has. Of particular interest was the graphic projection of the troop movements during the battle which placed this into context for me. We also...More
