  • One of my favourite Devonport attractions. Don't miss the simulator!! Great for the whole family. Kids love it and so does grandma!! My 80 yo mother saw a replica of the New Amsterdam which brought her from Holland to America after WWII.
  • Whow do not miss here if you have 1 hr to spare in Devonport, displays are great with so much more than you would expect. It was a wet morning last week and some 20 people came in after us. So much history happened here before the mainland of Australia was explored. Ships that visited and established a landing and did repairs and rested up. Visited Tuesday 13 February 2018 we are retiree Victorians on tour.
  • Very interesting. Comprehensive historical display. Exceptionally helpful staff.
  • I loved this place. Give yourself at least two hours, and 3-4 if you want to read and do everything. There's so much history here, and they make it work in many ways. It's probably too much for young children because it's so information rich. If you like maritime things, you'll love it. It includes separate rooms which have lots of displays. There are maps, prints on walls, a computer simulator. There's a cafe and some souvenirs. They also include a picture of the channel nearby, so make sure you have a look, perhaps a walk nearby along the channel before going in. It's great to see the history that's there outside the door.
  • This is a great spot to spend a couple of hours, ask for the tour.. Very helpful
