Thanks.

Hi,
As far as I know they moved to Fort Lee Virginia I believe.

An armour and artillery museum opened a few years ago in the northern Australian city of Cairns. This region is more famous for its location on the Great Barrier Reef. Anyway, I've been following the Facebook page and I'm amazed at what they've been able to put together here, at the other end of the world, so far away from where it all took place.

This year they'll be adding a Hummel, which was recovered (in pieces) from the East somewhere and a Panther. This one I think was purchased from someone in England and I think was a melding of two separate vehicles??? Aside from the WW2 stuff there's lot of post war vehicles too.

One of the offerings by the museum is vehicle rides. On Father's Day in September about 10 are made available for this. Not sure which ones yet but I intend to take my eight year old son to it and spend the day completely absorbed. They also do 'open hatch' days but these are mid week. Hopefully there's more of this on that September weekend. I would pay a 'pretty penny' to sit in the Panther for 5 minutes.

Not another museum, but a very interesting german weblog:
