Axel Stenross Maritime Museum Inc

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Visit a classic ‘bloke’s shed’ museum, the Axel Stenross Maritime Museum.

Axel Stenross made boats and the museum celebrates him, his life and the rich maritime history of Port Lincoln. The museum is an historic house but it is not the grand home of a rich landowner. Finnish-born Axel lived humbly in his corrugated iron complex, as can be seen by some of the walls which are made from tea chests. Axel’s home is simple but the museum is 21st century in other ways. For example, touch screens provide access to information on the many vessels which came to Port Lincoln.

One of South Australia’s most distinctive museums, it is also an operating slip-yard where small craft are cleaned and painted in among a number of historic vessels now at their final home.

Smell the sea and listen to the waves lapping not far from where you stand in the museum.
