Been there twice, second time took time to view properly, time is. Needed to experience well. What the diggers went through is very emotional and hard to forget, we never will forget.

Firstly, I don’t have a problem with the entry fee, cost of maintenance and upkeep on a location like this wont’ be cheap. If the cost offends you then you should lobby for some funding assistance.

However, the experience was really quite underwhelming. Some things of note:

1) The route you’re meant to follow isn’t clear at all
2) There was no real lead in to the origins of the war and and what led to war post Franz assassination
3) The parts where you put your soldier card down are too few - there should be 4 card readers at every point, not 2.
4) There was a distinct lack of artefacts inside the museum, where were the soldiers outfits, guns, bayonets etc?
5) The video playing in the centre which was in French with English subtitles doesn’t help engage a younger audience, just put the audio in English for crying out loud.
6) At the end, you get the option to enter a tribute using an onscreen keyboard - the interface is clunky with several presses required to get a letter registered. Made what should have been a nice touch frustrating.

On a side note, I thought it was amusing that so much had been made to be covid safe (mandatory check-in, every other seat blocked so you don’t sit too close to each other), only to have hundreds of people a day pawing at a screen trying to type a tribute.

Finally, outside the museum itself they really should have more plaques describing where some of the armaments came from and what their life was - I could only find two plaques about anti sub missiles but nothing on the other items.

Fair to say don't take young kids. They don't say not to but the after 20 mins ours were too noisy and boisterous to be in there. 3 years old.
The place though was very well laid out, they way the story was told was excellent and could have spent hours inside. I was impressed as they avoided too much bravado and just told the stories through various soldiers eyes. No glorification and highlighted the experiences they also had when they returned home. Will def go back next trip and spend more time. The front staff were excellent

We had a very informative time viewing and learning the history of all our diggers who fought so bravely at Wartime. You can join Brian at 10.30am for a free guided tour of the site with weapons etc, he is a wealth of information as he had first hand experience with repairing the cannons etc. He is 80 years young and a fine Scottish gent. He is very entertaining, which lightens all that you are absorbing. We were able to purchase a jarrah box to house my Husband’s Grandfather’s (Irish gent) WW1 medals, they have the original ribbon too. We’ll worth a visit. Seniors cost $21.00.

Wonderful experience. So much to see and do here. The centre itself doesn’t have much on display, it’s more about reading and listening to the audio guide. I loved it although the $25 entry fee is a little pricey and if you have a large family this could just be too expensive for a visit.

A second visit for us. Make sure you allow at least 2-3 hours to make the most of the Centre & surrounding grounds. We loved following the journey of the ‘soldier’ you are allocated on entry. Fantastic!!

A lot of info here. Presentation could be improved by creating a path showing the sequence of years. Other than that - a must see when in Albany

Visited the Anzac centre and it’s surrounding buildings, displays and lookout. A short walk uphill to the lookout was worth it. Then coming down the hill were bunkers and gunneries that kids would love to explore.
The Anzac centre was exceptional! Each participant gets a card with a soldier or digger on it. The card is interactive throughout the centre yo learn about your particular digger. Fantastic connection to the past.
You also get an audio device that you can swipe to hear more. Well worth the visit !
