The Museum houses a number of galleries that explore Western Australia’s relationship with the sea.
From leisure boats, pearling luggers and handcrafted sailing boats through to the winning America’s Cup yacht, Australia 11, visitors will be inspired by these iconic vessels and Western Australia’s rich maritime heritage.
The Oberon class submarine – HMAS Ovens – is another major attraction with daily tours by experienced guides (fee applies).
The Western Australian Museum — Shipwreck Galleries is recognised as the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere.
The Museum is housed in 1850s-era Commissariat building and has since been restored to its historic glory. Steeped in history, the galleries house hundreds of relics from ships wrecked along WA’s treacherous coastline, including the original timbers from the Batavia (wrecked in 1629), the de Vlamingh plate, and also countless artefacts from the Dutch shipwrecks Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and Vergulde Draeck.
