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

We spent a good hour or so checking out the great exhibits in what is in fact a relatively small exhibition area. Irrespective there is a lot to see and learn, what's more, if yo don't mind getting your hands wet a centrally positioned open display containing all sorts of things from live crabs to starfish and a whole lot...

We happily browsed here for an hour or so, enjoying learning about the history of the area. The channel display was an eye opener - who knew that the Yarra ran all the way out to sea all those many years ago! Seeing the maps and models really brought the whole area to life for us. The tiny fisherman's cottage... More

I took a group of men here for a few hours and we were all kept interested by the vast collection of maritime equipment, relics, and models. There is also a very interesting movie reel playing regarding the pilot service. They have some interesting examples of the evolution of scuba and navigational equipment.
