“This Place Always Closed”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Went couple of times to see the place but it's always closed, just a waste of building space I guess

“Now defunct”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This attraction has closed down. I think the artefacts have gone to Fremantle to a museum there.
What else do you want me to say?!!!

“The history of sailing”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This small WA Sailing museum is filled with flags from almost every sailing club in the world and replicas of the various vessels that took part in the America's Cup from the very onset of the race. Wax figures of the most important men who contributed are also there.It doesn't take long to see everything. The day we went they had t-shirts on special for $5. Show your Seniors card if you have one and it will only cost you $5 to get in. There is a cafe there as well.

“Something amazingly different”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

I am an easy target for maritime museums and Western Australia doesn't disappoint. Mandurah is easily reached on Perth's newest Metro rail line.
With 200+ amazingly detailed model ships and yachts, with much attention to the America's Cup, it's a different experience to anything else. Being a Kiwi, there was much to interest in wax models of the likable rouge, Denis Conner, and Kiwi sailing hero, Sir Peter Blake. I loved snippets from history, Burning Questions, particularly the quote from Columbus; Did he know where he was going? Apparently not. There's some stunning art displays mostly relating to pioneer America's Cup events. And the museum's Boardwalk Cafe met expectations in an excellent setting.
