The displays are very clear and informative. The staff could not be more helpful. They helped me trace a distant relative who died in the battle of Loos in 1915 and even gave me a certificate in his memory. A 'must see' whilst visiting Perth.

Great city centre location and free car park. Pleasant restaurant and helpful staff. Staff were also very knowledgeable, adding to the overall experience. Lots of history and facts on more recent campaigns. Well worth a visit.
