Australian Maritime Museum

The Australian Maritime Museum offers a delightful insight into the countries naval and seafaring history over the years. Fittingly located in Darling Harbour the museum houses an array of maritime exhibits and artefacts including a naval submarine and 18th-century ship – both of which can be boarded!

What’s Inside

Inside you’ll find the museum is based designed around seven main galleries that look at the discovery of Australia, aboriginals and the ocean, the countries naval defence systems and the sea as a resource. Make sure you explore the museum’s collection of racing yachts, submarines and destroyers to really immerse yourself in the maritime theme.

Who Should Visit?

The museum provides a great morning out for families with little ones interested in the high seas as there’s plenty of interactive exhibits and hands-on experiences to keep them entertained. That said, the museum tailors to all ages as the wealth of history and educational workshops are perfect for both history buffs and culture vultures.
