    Auf jeden Fall ein Besuch wert. Das Kriegsschiff, U-Boot und James Cook Schiff sind voll begehbar.

    Ao lado tem um shopping, os preços são melhores para almoçar ou lanchar. Os restaurantes da orla são bem salgados.

    General Admission which includes almost everything except visit to the boat & sub is FREE! The museum has a dedicated area for infants and a separate large play area for children.

    Fascinating experience to board a submarine and a destroyer. The museum inside is quite static in comparison. Note: the tall ship James Craig at the side is not part of the museum and is free to visit

    Be sure to spend some time at the Welcome Wall, which chronicles the millions of people (like me and my family) who have settled in this wonderful place. We'll be on the wall soon! 😊

    The Endeavour wasn't in the harbour but it was still a good afternoon out. Enjoyed the submarine (in particular) and their volunteer guides are so passionate it's a pleasure listening to them.

    How do you separate the men from the boys in the navy? With a crobar!

    If you're a whale lover like myself, get the Big Ticket ($27) and pay an extra $7 to see life-size photos of whales!

    Every Aussie should go to see the Endevour replica, the volunteers knowledge is excellent! The Vampire warship and Onslow submarine are also worth a look.

    Buy the 'big ticket' $25/$15 and explore the Endevour replica, Vampire Navy destroyer and Onslow submarine. Definitely the highlights of the visit. Volunteer guides are friendly and helpful @ANMMuseum

    Be sure to wear comfortable shoes! Crawling around the submarine, destroyer, and tall ship is hard on shoes and clothes.
