With audio-visual devices, including the famous holographic sound and light show, the museum really does ‘talk to you’. Be prepared for an authentic experience as you explore the museum, investigating this difficult period in Australia’s history as seen through the eyes of Vietnam Veterans. You will see the conscription ballot balls and the barrel used in the system of National Service that divided the nation. Walk beneath and around such key vehicles as helicopters, a tank, even a bomber used in Vietnam. See yourself in the boots of a Tunnel Rat or the helmet of a chopper pilot. Audio-visual and interactive displays throughout the museum are endlessly fascinating and absorbing, no matter your age. With themed exhibitions changing every six months, the museum mixes remembrance and reflection, providing visitors with a fasci- nating, emotional, rewarding and educational journey through the tumultuous years of the Vietnam conflict, often through the words of the veterans themselves. Awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and listed among the top 10 museums in Australia, the National Vietnam Veterans Museum really is worth a visit.
