The Port Pirie RSL Museum was officially opened in April, 2009 and endeavors to display exhibits from the Boer War to present day Afghanistan, including Australian peacekeeping missions that are factual, informative and most importantly easy to understand. Each exhibit features individual stories, general items, as well as priceless belongings of service personal and artifacts from these conflicts.
The museum has two Multi Media information points that allow visitors easy access to film footage, slides, photos and audio of the different wars – often from the soldier’s viewpoint.
In honor and remembrance of those who serve their country and in many instances pay the ultimate sacrifice, individually engraved bronze plaques with messages from service persons, their family and friends can be purchased and displayed on the Wall of Memory located within the museum.
As individual displays within the museum change regularly, return visits to the museum is recommended and the museum’s goal of becoming an educative facility is being realized.
Open Monday – Saturday between 11am and 4pm. Open Sundays between 11.00am and 2.30pm. Closed Xmas Day and Good Friday. Download an informative brochure below.
