Australian National Maritime Museum Tourist Attraction

Australian National Maritime Museum

The exhibition of the National Maritime Museum in Sydney is a collection of exhibits that will tell visitors about the power of the Australian Navy. One part of the collection is stored in the Museum building, and the other part, which is represented by several ships and a submarine, is moored in the nearby harbour. There are ancient aboriginal boats and modern battleships, and even surfboards, but the collection of naval armament deserves special attention. The entrance to the Museum is charged. Use the services of guides-volunteers going on a tour of the ships. Of course, it is possible to explore all the exhibits on your own, but a guide cannot only follow the route, but also tell many interesting historical facts. "Vampire" is one of the exhibited ships. It is a real military ship, which was a part of the Australian Navy in 1959-1986. It was used mostly for training and exercises in the territorial waters of South-East Asia and Australia. The second ship is "Endeavour". It is a type of vessel of James Cook. The Explorer made his most famous journeys on this ship. Thus, he brought Britain a lot of new colonies. These events took place in 1768-1771. Another exhibit of the Museum is the submarine "Onslow". During the Cold war, it patrolled the waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans. In 1999, the ship was decommissioned and sent to its well-deserved rest at the Maritime Museum. You will need more than one hour to see all the Museum exhibits, but a great pastime is guaranteed for everyone who is fond of the navy and everything connected with it!
