“Historic boats galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Entry fee is by donation. This place is really good for knowing more about Fremantle's harbour history. The Batavia gallery is a must see- they've reconstructed an original part of the ship and it is truly breath taking!

“OK if this is your interest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Although this was well laid out and displays had information panels, you really need to have an interest in shipwrecks to enjoy this.

“Perfect for history nerds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

You might have a hard time keeping kids or a potential girlfriend entertained here, but I thought it was pretty good and the stories behind some of the wrecks are interesting and well displayed.
