  • Shark exhibit is something we did on 23 minutes. Brief, boring and not very interesting. I wish I had done something different with my 23 minutes AND my money.

  • A great museum that I have taken my kids to a number of times over the years. Has awesome number of ships you can get on and explore. There’s a few old time large sail ships, a modern(ish) naval destroyer and even a submarine you can board too. The actual inside of the museum shows the history of Australian maritime over the years. There are plenty of staff around to help and to inform. It is a great day out with kids, young and old!
  • Superb Maritime Museum that allows you to explore an entire Navy vessel, a submarine and even an entire replica of Captain Cooks legendary ship called the Endeavour. Even if you don't have much interest in ships, you'll definitely learn something new about them. I highly recommend a visit. The included museum is interesting as well and definitely worth a visit as well.
