Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fremantle Reviews
Enjoyed this. Same, old, same old, but clean and interesting. If you've not been it's cute. However, it doesn't change much. Staff are always friendly and helpful. The holiday activities for kids held in the sub room are great though!
A really wonderful museum full of history, distant and recent. A wide variety of permanent exhibitions are displayed and visiting exhibitions are held throughout the year. The museum is at the far end of Fremantle, making it the perfect start or end to your exploration of the port city.
I went there with my friends, it was very nice and informative tour. I remember the ticket was $10 and $5 for students. many kinds of boats and ships equipment (old and modern ones), fish, shark samples (Exmouth) , and whale jaw. Next door there is a big real submarine, you can view it from the museum windows or to walk out for a live experience . However, there is no enough space for these stuff, so, I think it is crawdad. Nevertheless, it is close to Perth harbour, bus station, train station and a ferry jetty goes to Perth city.
Fantastic place. Relics from Australia's first inhabitants, visits from S. E. Asia and European settlement. Featured are all shapes and sizes of vessels from aboriginal rafts to a WW2 submarine. The collection includes triple round sailboat and Australia II. Included are samples from the rich shipwreck history of the Western Australian coast, aboriginal fish traps and pearling luggers. The current special exhibition depicts the naval evacuation of Pompeii by the Roman navy. Shown are many artifacts from Pompeii along with 3d reconstructions of Roman villas.
Actually quite like this place. Its kid friendly and every time I go I always see something new in the permanent exhibits. The museum also has temporary themed exhibits. We saw Pompeii today and again they had something for the kiddies. The museum is also located at a site of historical significance to Australia entry point for migrants from Europe and the rest of the world. The cafe behind the ticketing office is a great idea to take a respite chat about the exhibits whilst overlooking Freo port.
