Australian National Maritime Museum
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 that shows the inner workings of the Royal Australian Navy like never before.
The museum also hosts six permanent galleries, and an ever-changing program of temporary exhibitions, ensuring something for everyone.
When it is time for a break, treat yourself at the waterfront Ripples Cafe or picnic at the 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.
