Spectacularly located at the waterfront of Darling Harbour, the Maritime Museum is a distinctive indoor/outdoor attraction and great entertainment for the whole family.

The museum has one of the largest and most diverse in-water fleets in the world including the cold war submarine HMAS Onslow, naval destroyer HMAS Vampire, and the stunning replica of Captain Cook's tall ship HMB Endeavour. Explore the danger and drama of military life at sea inside the interactive Action Stations experience; a high-tech immersive journey that shows the inner workings of the Royal Australian Navy like never before.

The museum also hosts six permanent galleries, an ever-changing program of temporary exhibitions, and a 3D cinema, ensuring that there is something for everyone.

When it’s time for a break they have a range of waterfront dining options for every taste and budget. Treat yourself at their family-friendly Ripples Cafe, enjoy something delicious from The Coffee Kiosk or picnic at their tables on the Waterfront Boardwalk.

The museum offers a range of facilities and services for people with disability, such as Auslan-interpreted programs for the Deaf community and programs such as descriptive touch tours for visitors with vision impairment. If you’re visiting with a group that has particular access requirements, please ring the booking office on 02 9298 3777 and staff can assist in planning your visit.
