Came to see a special exhibition on sharks. It was great. Also opened my eyes to other things the museum has displayed. I need to go back and read all the names of the first migrants they have on plaques at the entrance. Well worth this visit
Spent my last day in Australia going around here. Was not disappointed. Really interesting to do the submarine and gain exclusive views on parts of the submarine most don’t get to see. Go here on a day that it is raining. 100% worth the price. Super interesting for a casual day out . Don’t forget to read the names outside the museum.
