WA Shipwrecks Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The WA Shipwrecks Museum is recognised as the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere.

The Museum is housed in 1850s-era Commissariat building and has since been restored to its historic glory.

Steeped in history, the galleries house hundreds of relics from ships wrecked along Western Australia’s treacherous coastline, including the original timbers from the Batavia (wrecked in 1629), the de Vlamingh Dish and also countless artefacts from the Dutch shipwrecks Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and Vergulde Draeck.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
