Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Exhibits well-displayed. A large variety of items from ropes to a complete fisherman's cottage. There are lots of exhibits outside which you do not realise when you first visit. It was a great insight into the danger of the lives of former mariners and the horrendous number of shipwrecks which have occurred along the local... More

Lots of local history. If you like lighthouses then this is one of the better museums to visit. Not as big as the rest but worth a look in the beautiful peaceful fishing town of Queenscliff. Less than a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal.

What a little gem! This museum is a great place to fill in an hour or two and discover the maritime history that forms such an essential part of Queenscliff and its inhabitants. Displays are well presented with loads of fascinating information, backed up with photos and artefacts. This is true value for money and is a credit to the... More

By chance we visited the Maritime Museum and were really surprised and delighted with the quality and the vastness of the displays. Very well presented and some good interactive displays.

This museum is wonderful. The rich maritime history of this area is fascinating. Kept myself and my partner reading, exploring & learning for several hours. The staff were very helpful and more than happy to discuss the exhibits. Entry fee is very reasonable $7p/p

As soon as we walked in a woman behind the counter approached us (I wish I had of grabbed her name). She was so friendly and really engaging with my kids. Because we were the only people there so took us on a guided tour. She was really knowledgable and elaborated on finer points to us while still knowing what... More

Was a good day out but not overly exciting for older kids. Maybe some attractions during the school holidays to get the kids more interested would be good. Still enjoyed our day there but not going back in a hurry.

Its been there for years, and I've never visited the [place, despite my yachting interest and activities. But if you have an hour or two with nothing to do in Queenscliff, the Maritime Museum is definitely worth a visit. It's located adjoining the Queenscliff (Sometimes spelt Queenscliffe)harbour and ferry terminal. Inside there are various displays illustrating the history of the... More
