WA Maritime Museum

Branch | Updated 3 weeks ago

HMAS Ovens is temporarily closed. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Perched on the Indian Ocean's shore, 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.


As part of a nationally consistent approach, all cultural and art institutions in Western Australia are closed in the interests of public safety in response to COVID-19. This includes the WA Maritime Museum, WA Shipwrecks Museum, Museum of the Goldfields, Museum of the Great Southern, Museum of Geraldton and Gwoonwardu Mia.
