Visit the Australian National Maritime Museum at your leisure with your choice of entrance ticket. Choose between the Big Ticket which includes all seasonal and permanent exhibits or limit yourself to just the special exhibitions and permanent galleries.

In the permanent collection, you can learn about Australia’s historic connection to the ocean in exhibits that detail stories and artifacts from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and European explorers including Captain James Cook. A full-size replica of Captain Cook’s ship The Endeavour, which he sailed to Australia in the 1780s, can be boarded for a hands-on experience of an 18th-century tall ship. Other galleries look into subjects such as immigration, naval defense forces, sailing and surfing.

The collection includes several historic vessels that berth at the docks located in the outdoor section of the museum. Depending on the day of your visit, you may find one or more ships available to tour: the HMAS Onslow, a submarine from the Royal Australian Navy; the HMAS Vampire, the last remaining big gun ship in the nation; and the tall ship named The James Craig, which took 30 years to restore and is one of the world’s few remaining 19th-century barques that are sea-worthy.

Check the daily schedule for guided tours and up-to-date exhibit information. A cafe that overlooks Darling Harbour offers refreshments for purchase or you are welcome to bring snacks and soak up views of Sydney Harbour from the museum’s terrace.

We enjoyed this museum. We went to see a movie and thought it would be an IMAX movie but instead it was a regular movie wearing 3D glasses.

Went to this museum with my two teenage daughters. It was very interesting. We walked on the destroyer and the submarine. The ship we enjoyed the best was Captain Cooks. It was so fascinating. We toured the museum after.

Really enjoyed the vessels, the Endeavour , submarine and war ship. Well worth a visit. We also went up the lighthouse which gave fantastic views. The volunteer guides were excellent and very knowledgable. It wasn't too busy the day we went so we were also able to wander around the museum building itself in our own time and take everything in.

Musée sympathique pour les amoureux de bateaux, beaucoup de choses à voir , à apprendre. La partie la plus sympa est quand même la visite des bateaux. Toutefois le sous-marin n'était pas accessible car un chantier en cours idem pour un autre bateau. Le seul bateau visité fut le vampire. De belles photos à faire , de bons souvenirs pour cette journée
