We travelled to Queenscliffe for the express purpose of visiting the Fort and Maritime Museum. Imagine our disappointment to see signs saying that their is no admittance without Photo Id's, the first time I have encountered this anywhere in the world!

We were staying in town and decided to drop in for a look. It was really interesting with the history of the bay shipping and pilots over 150 years. Great displays and you can feel the history. Don't speed past heading for the ferry, take you time to see these excellent sights.

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.

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.
