When you visit Phillip Island, don't miss the National Vietnam Veterans Museum.

The NVVM seeks to remember, interpret and understand the experience of the veterans of the Vietnam conflict and the enduring impact of the war on society.

Located in Veterans Drive (just next to the airfield on the main Phillip Island Road) this volunteer created and run museum is home to a huge collection of artefacts, both large and small, interpreted with information, imagery and audio (using our fantastic InfoWand devices and touch screens). It will keep you, your family and friends engaged for the length of your visit.

'Our museum talks to you'. Starting with the holographic Light and Sound Show, this helps visitors understand the significance of Australian military involvement by outlining the causes and consequences of the conflict. You can then investigate this era by seeing it through the eyes of Vietnam Veterans.

At NVVM you will see the conscription ballot balls used in the system of National Service that divided our nation. You will walk beneath and around such key vehicles as helicopters, a tank, even a bomber used in Vietnam. See yourself in the boots of a Tunnel Rat or the helmet of a Chopper Pilot.

Endlessly fascinating and absorbing, no matter what age group. Expect the unexpected. Allow a minimum of an hour and a half for your visit. A visit to this attraction will bring back memories for some and provide food for thought for others.

The Nui Dat Café serves light snacks and coffee while the Museum shop has unique memorabilia popular with all visitors. This is an all weather venue. National Vietnam Veterans Museum is child friendly. It also has wheelchair access and disabled facilities.
