The museum features permanent exhibits including HMAS Vampire – one of the largest destroyers ever built in Australia, HMAS Onslow – a submarine, whose moto is “strength, silence, surprise”, James Craig 1874 Tall Ship to name just a few.

The museum also showcases temporary exhibits such as “Going Places” – an interactive exhibition that explores the technology humans have developed for travel, “Beautiful Whale” - a gallery of life size photographs of whales.

On Sundays and during the school holidays, the museum runs Kids on Deck, which gives primary school aged kids (5-12 years) the chance to get creative with art, craft, science activities and interactive games.
