  • A excellent museum, small but great history and information. Perfect for families, as lots of things to climb on, everything turns, etc. Even a piece of Canada there :-) 
  • Fantastic location on the water with a serene view of the water and city. The historic ambience of the structure and ship combine to make this a place I will be coming back to. Strongly recommend.
  • Very good and awesome that you can go down into the dry dock now. Seems like some work needs to be done on the inside now. There some great stuff in there but it's not being used to its full potential.
  • Great place to learn a bit of history. Not as good as the one in Sydney however.
  • Great if you into boats, but if your not a big fan of boats, $16 may not be worth your money.
  • Although small but it has a good set of exhibits. And Diamantina is absolutely a must to see from the inside.
