“Bendigo's Military Museum (Paschendaele Barracks Military Museum)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is a very comprehensive museum run by volunteers, many of whom are war veterans and keen to inform visitors of the items on display. Much of the material has been donated from people of the local area and so it has special significance and poignancy. Knowledgeable guides are available, and arrangements may be made for school group visits. The guides also volunteer their services to local schools to inform the students of Australia's military involvements and legacies. Well worth a visit.

Great if you are interested in history - I enjoyed all the exhibits - lovely old building - right in the centre of town and near the tourist information centre.

“REVEALING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

This military museum is entry by gold donation and staffed by volanteers.It revealed to me many things I did not know and is worth a good hours visit two if you are on your own.You will learn a lot about how modern Australia was forged through military effort and sacrifice.The most interesting exhibits for me were firstly the soldiers stories in their own words and writing and second the photos found in a biscuit box on a farm recently which have been reproduced as a display including a video which lasts over two hours!

“Military items”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Saw the outdoor display about 10 months ago and it was impressive but the details escape me at the moment. Intend inspecting their unique WW1 photo display in 2014 - it is based on negatives found in a home in Bendigo about 2 years ago.
