Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fremantle Reviews - Write a Review
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.
Great looking building housing permanent and temporary exhibitions. Recently saw the Pompeii exhibit which is very interesting and informative with varied exhibits and audio-visual elements. Not too expensive, and worth the entrance fee. Also have a fact trail for kids with a booklet to fill in.
Informative,knowledge gaining & a great place to spend time with kids. Conveniently located near Fremantle train station.Grab a Red CAT (free shuttle bus) that brings you in.Helpful and friendly staff. Don't miss out taking a stroll around the museum outside,especially at the other end from entrance. Good photo taking spot overlooking Fremantle port and ocean. 1. Free locker (slot in $2 to use and retrievable at the end). 2. Mini kids activity area & resting benches available all around inside for short breaks. 3. Cafe to grab coffee,snacks,breakfast or lunch. 4. Family friendly amenities - feeding & nappy change room,water dispenser and accessible with ramp. 5. Parking bays (payable) available at front.
This museum has great maritime artifacts and exhibits, many interactive and with lots of maritime history on display. We especially enjoyed the Americas Cup winner Australia ll and the O Class submarine HMAS Ovens displays. The cafe and gift shop are also worth a visit. It's well laid out and also well located near Freo railway station and overlooking the Fremantle port and with plenty of nearby parking. Lots for kids to enjoy and do. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. Definitely worth visiting.
Had a good visit. Lots of maritime stuff - historical, military, commercial etc. There were many interesting stuff like the cut section of a life size torpedo, a few life size boats, yachts, models of ships, old gold ingots weighting scales, ship machines etc.
