Great way to spend an hour or so if you are into the nautical history of the area. My husband is a sailor so he was enthralled. I enjoyed most of the exhibits then enjoyed a coffee whilst he lingered. They have special exhibits most...More

The tour of the sub was a gift from my daughter. Colin was a great tour guide as he had done two tours of duty on the Ovens. He gave us a great insight into life in small spaces along with some amusing stories. Thanks...More

Museum was great but the forgotten order and hour+ wait for just nuggets and chips was unacceptable and they weren’t even busy ! Will never eat there again but would come back for the museum anytime

The submarine tour is amazing but you have to be brave to get inside! (It’s a very long way up) The museum is really good, I like that there’s always something new on and it never fails to delight. The main museum is a good...More
