EXPERIENCE MELBOURNE'S MARITIME HISTORY
AT SEAWORKS

About

The Seaworks Maritime Museum has an impressive collection of artefacts, models and bells to showcase the stories of maritime history of Melbourne.

Opened in 2011, the museum has built up a significant collection of material largely through donations from the Port of Melbourne Corporation, the National Trust and many individuals.

The collection continues to expand with new and improved displays being developed to tell many of the amazing stories surrounding Seaworks, Williamstown Dockyards and the Port of Melbourne.

It is staffed by a number of volunteers.

Exhibitions in the Maritime Museum include the First Fleet, prison hulks, Melbourne Harbour Trust and the Colonial Navy. The museum also includes an extensive library of maritime books and a collection of ship photographs.

The Maritime Museum welcomes visits by school and community groups.
