"Crabs, Curators and Craft is written over a photo of a Blue Swimmer Crab."

We can barely “contain” our excitement. This year we’re bringing something very special to Mandurah Crab Fest...The unveiling of our Museum in a Container!

See how we have transformed a simple shipping container into an interactive museum filled with all kinds of marine facts!

  • Find out about the Blue Swimmer Crab.
  • Learn about the Museum's research into WA's amazing marine diversity.
  • Talk to our Aquatic Zoology curators who will be answering all your crustacean questions and telling you about some fascinating specimens.
  • Watch live taxidermy demonstrations and crab dissections.
  • Craft your own Blue Swimmer Crab with our free family activity.

We look forward to seeing you there!
