This was a nice activity and good if you have the gold book entertainment voucher. For our family of 4 it came to $16.50.

We spent about 90 minutes wandering around and found it informative and interesting. The Megamouth Shark was a surprise. Entry was a good price for a museum that you could view in under an hour.

Very modern well layed out museum. Interesting historical time line of nautical WA. Good factual exhibits. Had lunch at the cafe which was good service and a varied menu. Like other reviews, a must see is the submarine, really interesting.

Enjoyed a great visit to the museum, but disappointed that the ovens submarine was closed due to inclement weather. Perhaps they could build some sort of shelter that would allow access to the submarine in all weather.
