  • Great representation of famous ship wrecks. Do take the time to watch the HMAS Sydney movie and the guided tour. Caroline was an excellent guide. So much to see so allow a couple of hours.

  • Small but very informative. Well put together. Enjoyed every minute. Maybe people with small kids must just watch their little ones not interfering where people are watching videos. So much to learn here. Would advise every visitor to Geraldton to make a turn here. It does not cost much, and you can donate $5 or don't have too.
  • What an excellent place to visit. We were greated by fabulous staff on arrival made feel welcome. Free admission and donations are welcomed but not forced on you, and a great gift shop on the way out. Highly recommend visiting. Geraldton thank you.
