Perched on the Indian Ocean’s shore, the WA Maritime Museums is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future as a coastal city and port.

The Museum houses several unique galleries that explore WA’s relationship with the sea. From leisure boats and handcrafted sailing boats to commercial pearl luggers, the Museum inspires visitors to discover WA’s affinity with the ocean.

The Museum is home to the winning America’s Cup yacht, Australia II, an Oberon class submarine — HMAS Ovens, Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour and many other iconic vessels from WA’s maritime history.

The Museum is open daily from 9.30 am – 5.00 pm (25 April 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm). Closed 25-26 December, 1 January and Good Friday.

Admission charges apply.
