History and militaria buffs take note. The Army Museum of South Australia first opened in 1992 at Keswick Barracks. On Saturday 8th October from 10am to 4pm, the museum is holding fits irst open day ever in its history.
Not only will the museum's own extensive collection of vehicles, hardware and memorabilia be on display, but a range of military equipment from units and associations all across South Australia will be all in the one place for the first time.
There'll be heaps of things to see and do and learn, along with plenty of displays to touch and feel. It's not all about history either. Come and meet with a range of Army units and hear them talk about their roles and their equipment. You'll also get the chance to see the Port Lincoln Re-enactment Group riding their horses.
A formal celebration will take place at 1:30pm with the cutting of the birthday cake and you're all invited to come and celebrate and maybe even get a piece of birthday cake.
Visitor entry will strictly be by the gates on Maple Avenue and parking is limited. Keswick Barrack is just out of the city and easily accessible by bus and train.
