I have been to the Maritime Museum several times and love it. There is always something new and different to see. A great experience.
We are a family of adults 3 females and 2 males and were delighted to feel that there was something for everyone at the Maritime Museum.We bought the BIG tickets and visited the viking ship,the war ship,the submarine and the lighthouse as well as the museum itself.We found the volenteers on the submarine to be very informative and interesting to...

We bought Big Tickets, so could see every thing, the museum was exciting, well laid out and easy to navigate but the real thrill was visiting the replica Captain Cook brig and the iron sailing ship, both alongside the museum. We didn't visit the D class destroyer or P & O class submarine as being ex RN and a submariner... More
Austrailian National Maritime Museum is a must do on any trip to Sydney. Well done exhibits both visiting as well as permanent exhibitions. Great area for kids as well as adults. Pay extra and take in the Endeavor and other ships. When touring Endeavor be aware that below decks have limited headroom and requires severe stooping for extended amount of... More
We visited the museum mainly for the Ansell Adam's exhibition, which provided a wonderful insight into the life and work of this great photographer. But this required entry to the museum. We paid the extra for a 'Big Ticket' that gave access to the Endeavour and other vessels ooutside as well as all the permanent exhibitions inside. As we had... More
Initially I went to the Maritime museum just to see the Vikings Display. Whilst the Vikings part was really well done, the highlight was being able to go onto the ships that were docked nearbly. The price of one admission let me wander around them for hours and go into the museum itself when I was ready. The volunteer guides... More
A very interesting place to visit. Oddly enough we went to see the Ansel Adams exhibition which had nothing to do with maritime history, but we toured the exhibits afterwards and were very impressed. The navy display was excellent, as was the Antarctic display. There's a lot of history - Kay Cottee's yacht for example, or you can go into... More
This is a great museum for people who like boats, history, Vikings, or penguins. I think the Vikings and the Antarctica exhibit are only temporary, but both are worth a visit. Also there are many real boats that you can walk or (in the submarine or the Endeavour replica) crawl around in. The guides on the boats are very helpful,... More
Visited this museum three years ago and returned because of the special Ansel Adams exhibition of photographs. The selection was excellent and really does highlight photography and the camera as a art form. Subsequently we toured the rest of the impressive building which is spread over three main floors. Maybe because we had been before, we did find the museum... More
Brilliant place. By far one of the best value attractions I visited across Australia. Going on board the ships & submarine definitely made it. Especially the guides on board - make sure you catch one at some point, great knowledge & passion.
