  • I quite enjoyed the shipwreck museum it was interesting to walk through and see some of the old coins and treasures that have been found on the sea floor. Due to time restraints, we didn't spend a whole lot of time here, but the time we did spend was worth it. For a gold coin donation, you can spend as little or as long as you like here. Would definitely recommend

  • I was a bit worried about taking an active 8 year old boy to a museum but it was so good! There were interactive displays and things he could climb on as well as a gift shop. Entry is free, except a donation of at least $5 is appreciated. The staff were lovely, helpful and very passionate about their museum.

  • Love this museum, great exhibits, friendly staff, entry via donation. If you like maritime history it's def worth a visit to see the remainder of the Batavia and a heap of other old bits.

  • This museum is so historical. The collections are extraordinary. Ocean expedition lovers are very welcome here. it's free as well. you can by some merchandise there.

  • One of the interesting museums in Western Australia is the Shipwreck museum in Fremantle, whilst it is a very traditional museum, it has some exciting stories to tell even if you don't like the traditional artefacts around ships and maritime history. The story of Batavia is one but there is others like HMS Success and the list goes on. If nothing else then spend a rainy day here, you can easily spend two hours learning something new. The museum is about a 5 minute walk from the station and there is plenty of restaurants and coffee shops around if you need a top-up, the museum itself is free.
