  • My daughter & I with a toddler in tow had a lovely morning at the Maritime Museum. The displays are really well curated & Australia 2 is so cleverly positioned to be viewed from all 3 levels. The attendant who chatted to me about Australia 2 was very interesting & had a wealth of knowledge. Well worth a visit.
  • Amazing museum with lots of displays to see and read from. There's boats, a real body of a Megamouth shark, submarine and plenty more others. Very interesting and informative. This is one place where you should certainly take your own time & pace to fully read and enjoy its history here. There's also guided tours here especially for the submarine for those who are eager and curious to explore inside a submarine. Besides that, they have a mini cinema here in a dome shape room that plays documentary films. Over all fascinating.
