    Great experience
    We visited the place last Tuesday for Easter fun and it was awesome. It was very informative trip for my 7 year old kid and he came to learn so many things related to Australian culture and about ANZAC day which were told by the owner of this lovely museum. We enjoyed a lot.

    Definitely worth a visit!
    Great gallery and exhibitions featuring various historical periods. John was very friendly and so knowledgeable! Lovely timber work for sale including pieces incorporating the old pier. With the roadworks you go through the roundabout then right into the slip lane (ignore google)- it's worth persisting until you find it.

    A Must See
    Well worth visit to see the woodwork & museum one man has created. John comes from a long line of woodworkers & his creations were wonderful. The museum was the best we have seen as far as size of his collection goes - all collected by himself since he was 17. A must see!

    Very good and informative.
    Our family really enjoyed this museum and gallery. John was very informative showing a lot of respect to Australian history and war history. Mr Kelly was very talkative as well. Would recommend to others and we will be back. Thanks again John.

    Fantastic museum and high quality wooden goods.
    What an amazing place, the museum is AWESOME go look, there’s a five dollar fee each to go in and it’s worth that and more, it puts other much larger more expensive museums to shame frankly and I’ve been in quite a few over the years. We initially went down the wrong road off the roundabout past Bunnings and found a dead end turned back and then located it so glad we did. Photos are allowed to be taken in the museum but not in the shop. Museum features in carefully organised sections collections on Australian war history as well of that of American and European along a section on the ancient people of Australia. There’s short informative cards alongside the various displays, I loved how the displays were done and there’s so much to look at, lots of model planes and boats too plus weaponry, the displays are not interactive so if you’re with young children ensure they are supervised don’t touch things. My husband and I love wartime history, especially WW2 as Guernsey was occupied by the Germans and we don’t need interactive exhibits to become immersed in reading about war history. The owner was very passionate about his work and the museum and rightly so and we had a nice chat about carpentry and war memorabilia. His wife who was on the front desk explained he had designed all the displays and I was so impressed with the quality and detailing, I’m not sure I can decide which was my favourite thing but I loved looking at the various uniforms and the section on Gallipoli was especially sad and poignant when you see that famous picture of them sitting on the great pyramid and realise so very few came back. It’s tragic and heart rending. There’s a large wood gallery to start with featuring some beautiful carved statement pieces along with smaller items such as vases, pen pots etc and the museum is through two doors at the back of the room, it’s air conditioned. I bought a small wooden vase and the owner said when we were leaving he had produced this item over thirty years ago when he decided to try his hand at wood turning and it was the first thing he produced in class. It’s now on it’s way back to Guernsey in the Channel Islands!

One of the most passionate, interesting store guides. Very respectful. The tour was really good with some interesting history and local influence, like Bunbury Port, Gallipoli…

Wonderful craft that is increasingly harder to find
The artistry is as good as we’ve seen ( even compares with high end Calgary Stampede art )
