This Museum is interesting just by presenting things which you haven't seen in other places hundred times already. Especially the part of the real ship is impressive. And the best of it is that all of it is for free!

This was a great place to visit. There are many exhibits from WA’s long association with shipwrecks dating way back to the era of Dutch exploration, with the historic Batavia wreck being displayed here. They also put on a fun history search game for the...More

I'm not a museum person and didn't expect to find it all that interesting but it's fascinating and very well done. Well worth a visit.

We found the museum very informative and the displays fascinating, however it would have been great if they offered tours where guides could give more information about the various shipwrecks and stories of their history. Even an audio tour offering would have been great.
