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.

My husband only stayed a little while. He didn't find it all that interesting, then again it doesn't cost much to go in. ($10 adult, $5 concession)

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.

Good family day out ! We went with two kids aged between 6 and 10. Favourite overall part was the submarine tour. Just make sure you are agile and not afraid of heights if you go on the submarine tour. Museum displays were great and many interactive. Kids enjoyed them too, especially seeing the preserved mega mouth shark! Great variety... More

This is really a great Museum. Im not into these types of things and was actually hesitant before going in but can thoroughly recommend it. They have a huge ship structure that really blows your mind upon entering and have kept everything in its authenticy. Truely a great walk back through time.

Its my first submarine visit..awesome, the guide named John gave lots of information, very passionately described every details. I did not explore the museum due to time constraint but I heard from a friend who lived there that it is very interactive. Will do it if I got another chance to Perth. The museum is free but tour cost me... More

This museum has a combination of attractions including the commercial side of West Australian maritime history . There is a good selection of exhibits including a submarine , Australia Two with the winged keel which won the Americas Cup in 1983. There is a pearling lugger and other forms of yachts and boats.
