As a sub unit of the Army History Unit, our mission is to preserve, exhibit and interpret armoured vehicles, artefacts, icons and memorabilia in order to promote and commemorate Australia's Light Horse and Armoured heritage. With this in mind we have more than just vehicles on display; we have two unique halls devoted to the history, people and technology associated with the Light Horse and the modern armoured corps. The museum now has more than 70 Armoured Fighting Vehicles on display in Hopkins Barracks, the home of Australian Armour at Puckapunyal, Victoria. Covering an area of over 4000 square metres the museum is one of the largest armour museums in the Southern hemisphere.
