I went in in 2009, and am staying at MOMC just behind it today. I am prepared to believe it is actually closed (as others report) but to be honest I am surprised at Trip Advisor that still rates this at 4.5, so had to say something. At best this is a small very specialist collection. Possibly interesting to Americas... More

At long last a cafe that advertises the fact! Even has dog bones bics for one's Mutt (I say that with love). And water bowls. We stopped for coffee but ended staying for late soup lunch. And it was Yummy. The vegetarian panini is also tasty. The menu is cafe style and made fresh daily. It is a shame that... More

This attraction is closed. Apparently it's been closed for months. We went in early Dec 2013 and there is still a "Sailing Museum" sign up but when we tried to get in we were told it was no longer a museum. When we asked whey there's still a sign up we were told "It's only been closed a few months!"... More

Went couple of times to see the place but it's always closed, just a waste of building space I guess

This attraction has closed down. I think the artefacts have gone to Fremantle to a museum there. What else do you want me to say?!!!

This small WA Sailing museum is filled with flags from almost every sailing club in the world and replicas of the various vessels that took part in the America's Cup from the very onset of the race. Wax figures of the most important men who contributed are also there.It doesn't take long to see everything. The day we went they... More

I am an easy target for maritime museums and Western Australia doesn't disappoint. Mandurah is easily reached on Perth's newest Metro rail line. With 200+ amazingly detailed model ships and yachts, with much attention to the America's Cup, it's a different experience to anything else. Being a Kiwi, there was much to interest in wax models of the likable rouge,... More
