Great family day out. Interesting facts and sights to see. Saw a submarine that had been built in my hometown in Scotland across the other side of the world.

After being pleasantly surprised by the museum in Geraldton a few years ago, we decided that we would visit the Maritime museum this time around. We wanted to do the submarine tour as we had not been on one before. We got there just before a tour and went through the submarine first, prior to working our way through the... More

This is a nice place to visit in freo for free. I visited the museum in Jan 2015 when I went to Perth for vacations. It is very near to the beach, so if you go to the beach in freo don't forget to visit this place and as far as I remember the place had free entry.

Loved the layout of this museum. Set aside half a day. Open floors and easy to view the displays from multiple levels and angles. Went on the submarine tour - thanks to tour guide John we were given so much info and we totally enjoyed the walk through.

A very interesting museum.Lots of varied maritime vessels, old and new, large and small.An insight into lots of Australian history, and something for everyone.There is a submarine outside which for a small extra charge you can have a tour.

I drag the family in here at least twice a year, they always enjoy it after the initial AGAIN complaints. The location is handy to train station and close to lots of restaurant options in Freo proper.

WA Maritime Musuem in Fremantle is worth a visit. Check out free entry days. WA has plenty of Maritime history including Americas Cup yachts on display - Australia II. You could spend a couple of hours looking through the place. Ships sail past outside entering or leaving the harbour and the E shed markets are a short walk away for... More

Lots to interest all ages including some interactive activities for the kids. School holiday activities are great value but you do have to pay the entry fee first.

Just love being in this building, it's great! There could be a bit more to look through and engage visitors, can't really see myself staying a great deal of time there. The kids toys upstairs were a good spot to take a break.
