Australian National Maritime Museum
A great day out for the family, with enthralling exhibitions and a must-see collection of vessels.
At the Australian National Maritime Museum you’ll find a great day's entertainment for the whole family. There's so much to see and do, with exhibitions that tell stories of adventure on the water—naval battles and mutiny—migrants venturing across the seas to settle on our shores—ancient saltwater traditions—modern beach culture—and aquatic sporting achievements.
Enter the awesome world of underwater warfare aboard a navy submarine—explore the last of the big-gun destroyers—marvel at the Spirit of Australia, holder of the world water speed record since 1978—climb aboard HMB Endeavour, a magnificent replica of Captain James Cook's famous vessel of discovery, or the 1874 James Craig—or climb the 1874 Cape Bowling Green Lighthouse.
