Discover a slice of Australian naval history on the Mornington Peninsula. We have hundreds of exhibits on display at our museum — from model boats and naval uniforms, to torpedos, underwater mines and naval artillery.

It's a great day out for your whole family or group, and there are plenty of enjoyable activities and eateries for you to explore around the Mornington Peninsula while you're here.

We are open on Saturday and Sunday from 10:0am to 3:00pm.
You will find us at 220 The Esplanade, Crib Point, Victoria, Australia

During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to see the HMAS Otama — a decommissioned Royal Australian Navy submarine! She is located a short walk away, accessible via a walking track to the beach.

Did you know that the HMAS Otama was one of two specialist "Mystery Boats" that was regularly deployed on surveillance and spying operations during the Cold War?

As at August 2021, her future is in jeopardy.

Help us by signing an online petition.
