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.
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.
This place is a fun day out for the kids and family. A bit pricy at times but still very interesting. The museum has a variety of things to see and do. You can even come face to face with a giant shark. In the holidays they have special free kids activities. They also have special bonus exhibition from time to time however some of them aren't worth the money but others are. They also have a huge submarine which you can join a tour guide and climb on board which is really awesome and enjoyable. Not really a full day outing but never the less an enjoyable one!
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.
People be aware the parking area in front of the building is paid parking. Missing the signs when arriving gets you a 65 dollars fine . Expensive day. Museum is fine though, the temporary Pirate exhibition was a bit meager but overall going there is fun with kids, especially when combining with a lunch at Cicerello's
