Maritime Museum

Perth hotels

Located, quite appropriately, looking over the beautiful Indian Ocean is a Fremantle institution, the Maritime Museum. Within the walls of this amazing museum lays symbols of Fremantle's eclectic past, present and future.

Maritime Museum

Fremantle is an old world port town with character completely different to that of Perth City, and the Maritime Museum is certainly no different. The museum is home to six incredible galleries which each are committed to different aspects of Perth and Fremantle's relationship to the ocean.

As you browse through the displays and exhibits you get the opportunity to visit vessels spanning the whole spectrum. From luxurious leisure boats to hand crafted sailing boats and small homemade vessels for fishing and the large commercial pearl luggers. The museum is committed to encouraging the visitors to explore and discover more about why the ocean is so important to every aspect of Western Australian lifestyle and culture.

Home to the Australia II, the winner in the America Cup yacht race, the Oberon class submarine and the original Endeavour, the museum insures you get to experience marine life across centuries of sea voyaging.

From art to artifacts the museum spans all interests and age groups ensuring visitors of all sizes are enthralled by the displays. Find out what life was like for sailors and fisherman in the early colony days of Western Australia, discover who arrived in Australia by ocean and landed for the first time on the West Coast.

For a wonderful step into history and an insightful look at the future of marine life in Perth and beyond, The Maritime museum is perfect for families, friends and anyone who loves all that is marine focused.
