Open Hatch Day
Every Wednesday at 11:30am, The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum conducts an “Open Hatch” day.
Our Assistant Manager/Ex Tankie Jason, is highly knowledgeable in the field of armoured vehicles. Watch and listen as he conducts a walk around tour of one of our unique and rare vehicles, and will discuss topics such as mobility, armour protection, firepower and combat history of the specific vehicle. The Open Hatch day also allows visitors to actually climb inside and take photos of the vehicles which is usually off limits to the public. There is no additional costs involved to be a part of our Open Hatch Day, as it is part of the general admission fee.
Please note that it can be quite claustrophobic inside our vehicles, if you do have any issues with enclosed spaces, please inform staff prior to entering vehicle.
