COVID-19 Business Update
As part of a nationally consistent approach, all cultural and art institutions in Western Australia have closed in the interests of public safety in response to COVID-19, including the WA Maritime Museum, however, they have launched an online program - Distant Discoveries.
Western Australian Museum is home to millions of collection items, some of which can be traced back almost to the beginning of the Earth. Working behind the scenes are passionate curators and researchers who use those collections to help us understand our world.
As part of our Distant Discoveries program, over the coming weeks you will see a range of videos, photography and stories—you can read, watch and listen from wherever you are. There will also be some fun opportunities to submit your own stories and content.
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 unique galleries that explore WA's relationship with the sea. From leisure boats and handcrafted sailing boats to commercial pearl luggers, the Museum inspires visitors to discover WA's affinity with the ocean.
The WA Maritime Museum is home to the winning America's Cup yacht, Australia II, Jon Sanders' Parry Endeavour and many other iconic vessels from WA's maritime history.
