Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Alan Baker was a wonderful person to meet and had a lot of knowledge to share, it brought back a lot of memories for my husband who is an ex service man. There
is a lot of memorabilia on display but due to lack of space this cannot be displayed to the best advantage. Nevertheless we enjoyed the experience very much. Definitely worth a visit. Laurie & Carole

Interesting many items. Space way too small to present really well. Terrific stuff not just military. $5 Entrance fee is fine. A bit.pokey ashame the council won't help with a better space for the truly dedicated man overseeing the museum. This is his life's collection. A few fans but hot and the artefacts need to be preserved in a more suitable venue.

To be honest, there is too much in this space... making for tripping hazards and an inability for people with mobility aids to maneuver. Having said that, it will be limited by finances and the inability to extend the space. The entrance for this is just off the main street. 

So, after you get over the feeling of overwhelm in here you will find gems. This is a museum you could return to over and over again and learn something new each time ... simply because there is so much packed into the location... and there is a saturation point of information for all of us. 

The gentleman at the counter was really friendly... The cost to get in is low, BUT make sure you have cash...they don't do eftpos. 

I really enjoyed my time here... I love learning anything new, or seeing things I have not seen. As I have frequented multiple museums ... There is much of this that I have seen before but there was a lot of new items for me. An item of fascination for me was a certificate for the Klu Klux Klan... call me naive, but I didn't realise they would have such formalised documents. I would have thought it to be an underground organisation...so that helped shed light on an area i didn't know much about before. Another area that had me fascinated for all of the wrong reasons was the information about what the Japanese did in the war to Asians in other countries... It was appalling and shocking.

We were walking through Childers and found this place by chance. A very friendly gentleman runs this museum, and it is brilliant! Absolutely FULL of war history and other interesting bits & pieces. We’ve never seen a collection this impressive. Only $5 entry - definitely worth taking the time to look through.

What a great little fine down the alleyway right of the main street. This place is packed to the Ceiling with all sorts of memorabilia including Fire, ambulance, military, railway and the curator is not only extremely friendly but very knowledgeable. Definitely a must see when visiting Childers! He even offered us a cup of coffee as he had just pulled the jug for himself. Beautiful country hospitality!

Excellent presentation, fascinating Militaria history unbelievable for a small country town. If there is fault it is the cramped condition that it is housed in and I would imagine that is due to lack of government support than anything else. Alan Baker is an excellent source of information and knowledge.

This attraction is a absolute treasure trove of Militaria. Traversing many countries and conflicts, this collection is a must-see when visiting Childers. Alan Baker one of the trustees of this outstanding display is a wealth of knowledge. Uniforms, badge insignias, model aircraft, weapons, flags, personal stories and so much more. Central location just off the main street and all under the one roof. Over 50,000 items to discover!!!

An absolutely fascinating collection of items stretching back for over 100 years, across multiple continents and categories. This museum was a real glimpse into the past, not just from an everyday perspective, but also for police, firefighters, military, and medical fields. I particularly liked the original advertisement to become a police officer, with gems like "(they) will be encouraged to grow a beard, as shaving is considered unhealthy", and that officers were not allowed to take off their uniform, in case they could be considered to be spying on the public!

Bring a camera if you can, but ask permission before taking photos.

So much collected into such a small space, one of the most interesting and extensive collections of Australian history jammed into one place, you have to look around every corner to find everything. Possibly a little delicate for small children unless extremely well behaved. Really worth a visit, much more than we expected.
