Australian National Maritime Museum

Collection

The Australian National Maritime Museum is Australia's national centre for maritime collections, exhibitions, research and archaeology. As Sydney's most visible national cultural institution, it is committed to connecting audiences right across Australia in both urban and regional areas. The permanent and temporary exhibitions and the National Maritime Collection explore and represent Australia's close links to the sea covering Indigenous Australian's deep connection to ocean, early exploration, immigration, commerce, defence, adventure, sport, play and identity. From fascinating artefacts, thought-provoking exhibitions and fun activities for kids (and big kids), the museum gives local and international visitors a chance to connect to Australia's maritime past and present in an innovative way.
