Perched on western end of Victoria Quay, the WA Maritime Museum is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future as a coastal city and port.

The Museum houses several unique galleries that explore WA's maritime relationship. From leisure boats and handcrafted sailing boats to commercial pearl luggers, the Museum inspires visitors to discover WA’s affinity with the ocean.

The Museum is home to the winning America's Cup yacht, Australia II, an Oberon class submarine — HMAS Ovens, Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour and many other iconic vessels from WA's maritime history.

Opening hours are generally 9.30am - 5pm seven days a week, except for Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day. Anzac Day opening hours are 1pm - 5pm. Entry fees apply.
