WA Maritime Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

WA Maritime Museum explores how our relationship with the ocean shapes what it means to be Western Australian. Perched on the harbour, the Museum attracts one-third of the international/interstate tourists visiting Fremantle, Perth’s vibrant port city. It showcases the moments, voyages and vessels; the artefacts, people and the stories in our rich maritime history.

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.

Permanent galleries immerse visitors in their ocean-centric culture and their dynamic calendar of temporary exhibitions and programming ensures there’s always something new.

The Museum can be reached by water (on a river cruise from Perth to the B-shed terminal), by train, bus or car. It’s a short walk from the station and there is ample parking in Victoria Quay.

WA Maritime Museum is an iconic community hub and a world-class tourist attraction that is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future.
