The NVVM seeks to remember, interpret and relate the experience of the veterans of the Vietnam War and the enduring impact of the war on society.

Our Museum was initiated and created by volunteer veterans. Largely also run by volunteers, it is home to a huge collection of artefacts and images. See the Conscription ballot barrel used in the system of National Service that divided our nation. Walk beneath and around such key vehicles as helicopters, a tank, even a bomber used in Vietnam. Imagine yourself in the boots of a Tunnel Rat or the helmet of a chopper pilot.

‘Our museum talks to you’. The holographic Light and Sound Show provides an engaging overview of Australian military involvement in the conflict. You can then investigate this era through the eyes of Vietnam veterans, and listen to detailed information using an "InfoWand".

Allow a minimum 1.5 hours for your visit.

Nui Dat Café is open 7 days a week for light refreshments and beverages.
