GRUBBY FINGERS MUSEUM GUIDE

MUSEUMS WITHIN AUSTRALIA

Looking for an Air Museum, Transport Museum or Military Museum in Australia?

Here is a list of Australian air museums, military museums, naval museums, transport museums and car museums. They are organised by State so you can find something near where you are.

Click on any of the names and you’ll be taken to a page with contact details and a brief look at what they have on display as well as a link to their own website so you can see what they have to say about themselves too.

If it's a museum I've visited personally, there will also be an attached photo gallery of my own pics. Many of the exhibits I've visited will also have walkaround galleries in the walkarounds section of this website.

… or elsewhere?

There is also an overseas section, at the end of the local listing, detailing museums I have visited outside Australia. Likewise, there is a photo gallery attached to each entry.

Enjoy!

MUSEUMS OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA

Limited list of Air Museums, Transport Museums or Military Museums I have visited outside Australia

I occasionally get to visit museums overseas from Australia. When I do I try and take as many photos as I can to share here on my website.

As I do with the local establishments, I take a set of general photos of the overseas museum along with detailed walkarounds of subjects of particular interest to me. These walkarounds are available as separate galleries in the walkarounds section of this site.
