WA Maritime Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Celebrating the State’s affinity with the Indian Ocean and high seas beyond, the WA Maritime Museum takes you on an epic voyage through history, from early explorers and pearlers to America’s Cup winners.

Overlooking the mouth of Fremantle’s working harbour, 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.

The Museum houses several unique galleries that explore WA’s maritime relationship. 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.
