Western Australian Maritime Museum - Review
Located in a sail shaped building, the maritime museum is famous for its amazing displays of Australian maritime souvenirs and memorabilia. There are many boats on display including the famed Australia II, which one the American Cup. There are interactive displays and exhibits for kids that are great fun. Don’t miss the submarine tour that might just be the best part of this lovely museum.

Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fremantle Reviews
School holidays. Took my grandson to the Maritime Museum last week to attend the event Pirates. He had such good fun. First my grandson made a pirate's hat. Then we went into a room that was set up with ships, canons and soft balls, stories, history boards, interactive games and dress-up clothes. Designed very well so that this suited age group from 4 - 12yrs old.
Went saw Antarctica experience virtual reality show, it was pretty cool expect for the children carrying on and making annoying noises during it which should've been mentioned at the start that it is a show with no talking allowed so others could hear what the speaker is trying to say on virtual reality thingy. The history of Maritime museum is interesting, clean and spacious. Highly recommended it
A great place to visit at the Fremantle Harbour. Easy parking and accessible to the E Shed Markets nearby. Very informative museum on maritime history in WA and examples of various types of boats including the Australia II which won the Americas Cup in 1983 in the waters nearby. For an extra cost you can tour HMAS Ovens which is a retired Oberon class submarine. Well worth a trip.
The Museum has just done something amazing which is above and beyond all others... it is showing a Virtual Reality movie of Antarctica... using new technology combined with subject matter which is the first of its kind in the world. I could watch it again and again... I felt like I was in the helicopter... and standing right there as the penguin looked up at me (the camera)... and the AURORA AUSTRALIS was .... huge!! All over the sky as I looked up!!!
Submarine tour is very impressive. World class tour. Museum itself is small and compact but will keep you busy for an hour. Lots of kids activities and the architecture of the building itself is great.
