Shipwreck Galleries - Review

It’s amazing to see how wrecked ships make for such marvelous stories and memorable relics. The Batavia display will leave you mesmerized. There are bullions, cannons, swords and various other objects of interest. Housed in the Commissariat Building, the Shipwreck galleries are truly a revelation.

Shipwreck Galleries, Fremantle Reviews

  • I enjoyed this small museum a lot more than the bigger Maritime museum up the road. It tells a lot of good stories of the early European visitors to the west coast of Australia, as well as explaining the technical parts of 17th century navigation techniques. Entry is free, and it will take an hour to look around if you take your time here. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

  • One of the best attractions I have visited in Fremantle. An excellent presentation of the rigorous maritime history of Western Australia. The wreck of the Batavia exhibition and collections are unbelievable. I found the volunteer staff to be both pleasant and incredibly knowledgeable. This is by all means a most excellent attraction to visit if you are interested in maritime history and shipwrecks.

  • I enjoyed my visit to this museum... and best of all, the price was free. Several very interesting displays of recovered portions of wrecked ships. Not very big, but what there is is packed with good things to see. You can do a quick overview in 20 minutes, but if you get hooked on reading all about one, you can spend 2 hours easily.

  • This is the best shipping / maritime museum in the world. It is small but the exhibits are huge in stature and meaningful. The Batavia is the best and most complete exhibition of its type I have seen. I have been to the maritime museum in Amsterdam but saw nothing like this.

  • Well worth a visit. Over time, many ships were lost on the reefs off the Fremantle coast. The museum's excellent displays give a clear and often detailed insight into the area's maritime history and the many interesting stories to be told. Entry is free. Donations are welcomed Recommended.
