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 torpedo's, naval artillery and an underwater mine. 

We are open on weekends from 10:00am to 3:0pm. 

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 and the Western Port area while you're here.

Current Maritime Centre 


Our knowledgeable volunteers would be happy to show you through the museum, tell you a bit about its history, and the exhibits on display.

Organise a private tour of the centre with one of our knowledgeable volunteers. Perfect for school groups and clubs. 

HMAS Otama

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?
