The Jackson Collections was opened by the Governor General in September 2009, and is the lifetime collections of two brothers, Hilton and Ike Jackson. Prepare to be thoroughly intrigued by the many other interesting items on display; hubcaps, buttons, drill bits, rabbit traps and scissors are just some of the quirky collections. Hilton’s bottles are reputed to be one of the largest and best collections in Australia and contains over 30,000 bottles. Ike’s valuable collection comprises over 120 firearms from wars and battles fought throughout the world and includes a Japanese Nambu submachine gun. There's national flags from both world wars, knives, uniforms, helmets and an absorbing assortment of thought-provoking war memorabilia. Council purchased these two collections so that they may be preserved and displayed for generations to come. The distinctive facility within the Museum precinct will be a lasting tribute to the passion and commitment of two gentlemen....
