The museum is the largest and most diversified military collection in Australia, complementing the work done by the Australia War Memorial in Canberra, with which it works closely.
The complete display comprises many stand-alone collections of the highest calibre, all housed under the one roof in the massive, 5000 sq m museum on site at the Gaza Ridge Army Barracks at Bandiana.
The museum is also home to the Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps collection, which features probably the best display of original nursing uniforms in the country, dating back to Australia’s involvement in the Boar War.
Other specialised displays include historical collections from the Army Chaplains Department, the Army Catering Corps, the Australian Women’s Army Service, the Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Unit and Albury’s own 2/23rd Australian Infantry Battalion.
Open seven days a week from 9.30am to 4pm. (Closed Good Friday, ANZAC Day, Christmas and Boxing days). Tours can be booked.
