  • Was really interesting having a look at all the memorabilia. The kids loved looking at all the boat models with battleships and things. 
  • This is a real treasurer of a place to visit. Hidden in an understated building by the river, behind the town library. It's a real family attraction that will please the oldest as well as the youngest...  read more »
  • What an amazing museum this is. An amazing collection of maritime memorabilia. My favourite was the Balsa Raft that arrived in Ballina in the 1970's from South America. What an incredible journey that...  read more »
  • I take my class to visit the Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum to support our HSIE work at school. Although they are very young(5-7 years), they find so much suitable for them. The beautiful visual effects, the interactive displays. the mighty las Balsa raft and the very helpful band of volunteers provide a recipe for success. It is like entering another universe for children who rarely get to see anything of its ilk in their daily lives. I cannot give enough accolades to all those responsible for any and every part of it. I took my Brisbane grandchildren to visit 2 years ago. They were astonished to see many ship models which had been made by their Brisbane neighbour! In May I am planning to take my new bunch of budding historians to visit. They will be preparing for their visit from the beginning of term 2. Can't wait. Many, many thanks - you are legends.

They felt very free to ask for help in finding all the items pictured on their 'find it' sheet (given out from the front desk). Glad to see everything is all in order after the roof was replaced last month. We will spend the next 2 weeks talking about what we learnt from our visit, and reviewing our photos. Thank you everyone. We loved the opportunity to peek into the past. Our bus driver had not been there before and was very impressed too. He is planning to take his daughter now. Keep up the great job. Jill Duff Casino Christian School
