A really good museum focusing on Western Australian contributions to the armed services. There arte a lot of vehicles for entertaining the young ones as well as the usual static dislays. If you visit bring ID as you need to sign in on entry.

Great place to visit. Our guide was excellent—very knowledgable, and answered all our questions. Museum is manned by enthusiastic volunteers. I cannot recommend this Museum enough. It is a shame this place is not publicised more.

unfortunately I cant remember a particular exhibit purely focusing on the bands as the exhibits are set up within the theaters of each war.
