WA Maritime Museum

Branch | Updated 2 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.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Western Australian Museum locations are now open. In line with requirements of the WA Government’s Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, there is a limit of 100 people per single undivided space, and up to 300 people per Museum over multiple spaces. This takes into account the new occupancy limit that allows 1 person per 2 square metres of venue space.

The New Museum in the Perth Cultural Centre is under development and will open in November 2020.
