  • OMG this little treasure was out of their world. ALL of the volunteers in the museum were bloody brilliant. They gave us all a personal tour of the place. Never knew it was as big as it is. Brilliant members there to help you out. Best $10 we have ever spent. Our Pommies visitors with us love it too.
