“Lots of memories”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

What a fascinating place. So much history. Well worth the entry fee which is quite reasonable. My husband had not been on a submarine for 49 years so it was like going back in time for him. I enjoyed it as well. Great place to visit and don't forget to go on the submarine.

“Beautiful facility that tells a story”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful to see Australia 2 and the story around the dramatic winning of the Americas Cup but what struck a chord were the displays that illustrated immigration and the "ten pound Pom". Emotional and heartwarming. Great experience.

“Good, but could be better”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This is a relatively new museum situated in the fascinating docklands district of Fremantle. It has some really good exhibits but by modern standards could have been far more interactive, especially for younger visitors. The most popular exhibit is the tour of an actual retired submarine, but be warned that it is a separate tour, with limited numbers, and it books out quickly. The current temporary exhibition about change in the Abrolhos Islands was an excellent surprise at the end. Definitely worth a visit.

“Interesting history”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

there are some interesting things on display. It's a shame the place was so dark that it was difficult to get the full effect of the displays.

“Professional”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

I work at the National Maritime Museum Sydney and this is just as good although it does not have the number of displays of the NMM. Still a good visit .
