Climb aboard and join the action at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Spectacularly located on the waterfront in the heart of Sydney's Darling Harbour, you'll find tall ships, Navy vessels, a submarine, beautifully restored historic boats, fascinating temporary and travelling exhibitions and fun-filled activities for the kids. The museum houses the National Maritime Collection, which features over 140,000 objects, capturing themes such as defence, exploration, migration and coastal culture. It also includes one of the largest and most diverse in-water fleets of any museum in the world - including submarine HMAS Onslow, Navy destroyer HMAS Vampire, tall ship James Craig and Captain James Cook's HMB Endeavour replica. Visiting the Action Stations exhibition is a must for an immersive museum experience like no other, where you can explore that danger and drama of Navy life at sea.

I came to hear ocean talks and to see the James Cameron exhibition. Absolutely wonderful and informative. Big video screens documenting Cameron’s journey in film and his ocean obsession.

Visited this museum whilst my wife was working and it was well worth the entry fee. There are two separate aspects to the museum, the floating vessels (Onslow submarine, Vampire warship and replica of the Endeavor etc) and the land side building. Both were interesting...More

The exhibition was very good with lots of large screens to watch short videos about his travels and Titanic. However there were no seats provided to watch these short films. Had to stand, not good for older people.

There are lots of ticket options but the free ticket option doesn’t mean you will miss out. Good, infomative and interactive displays for this part of the exhibition covering a range of historical periods.

A great museum, the replica of the Endeavour is a real highlight. Very easy to spend the day here, however kids could become a bit bored.

Loved this museum as it was interactive and gave a broad history of Australia’s Martinez history. A highlight was being able to walk through Kay Cottee’s yacht. This was an amazing feat for this woman to sail around the world single handedly. The other highlight...More
