As Dutchy I offcourse had to see a piece of our history and sure thing their is a lot of history in this museum. The schip wreck of the batavia is amazing never saw anything a like and all the ornaments, canons, puttery, mints etc are very well preserved. Furthermore its free so do not skip this!

This place is fascinating, and full of interesting information, and it is free, although donations can be made, and they are well earned! To go around all the exhibits in one visit can be a challenge, but a few short rather than one long visit is probably a better approach.

Just loved this place but I am into boats and maritime history. Even if you were not I think the remains of the Batavia and its treasures is sure to impress anyone. With free entry this museum offers so much. I will definitely go back as there was too much to absorb in the couple of hours I spent there.... More

The museum features the wreck of the Batavia and we spent almost an hour and a half wandering around the various exhibits and reading their history, which was absorbing! Highly recommend a visit there!

This gallery is very conveniently located, easy parking. Ships are not a specific interest of mine, but it was quite lovely to visit since we happened to be in the area. The items presented were well displayed, staff were friendly and the entry is free.

i would pair visiting this location with the WA maritime museum. The galleries looks small from the outside, however inside it has a large collection of shipwreck items. Visitors can expect to spend an hour or two in there.

Check online for availability. Went there only to find that it has been closed for renovation works. On the bright side, it now is on my to do list for my next visit to Fremantle. Convinient spot, just hop on Blue CAT bus ( its free) and hop out at Stop 17 Fishing Boat Harbor which will bring you to... More
