about ...

Sydney Maritime Museum
©2006 Gabriel Ditu
The Australian National Maritime Museum presents Australia's naval history from the ancient times when Aboriginal people, used to trap fish and traded it with the Asian neighbors, right up to the modern time.

You can board on a real submarine, a real destroyer or on Captain Cook's Endeavor replica.

There are also hands-on exhibits, a cinema and the latest museum computer games.

Also on display is Australia II, winner of the 1983 America's Cup; the famous World War II commando boat Krait; a Vietnamese refugee boat and many more...

Maybe not the best value for money, Australian Maritime Museum will help you understand better the Australian history.
