The original timbers and treasures from the famous Dutch shipwreck, the Batavia, are on show as are displays highlighting the mystery surrounding some of Australia's oldest shipwrecks.
A replica of Australia's first ship, the Duyfken, was constructed in the museum courtyard. The Duyfken was launched in July of 1999 and set sail to visit major Australian ports, before re-enacting the voyage from Texel in the Netherlands to Cape York, Australia.
School groups are welcome and guided tours can be arranged.
