|About these ratings|
No harbor city would be complete without a maritime museum, and Sydney's is one of the best. Why, you ask? First, you can view exhibits about everything from surfboards to ship convicts, but you can also board the HMAS Vampire, a destroyer ship; the HMAS Onslow, a submarine; the James Craig, a three-masted barque ship; and the Duyfken vessel.
Families, who visited the museum, appreciated the diversity of activities for kids. But one TripAdvisor user had some good advice for women visitors: "Women should make sure to wear undies as the plethora of ladders allows kids to look up skirts easily."
You'll find this museum right on Darling Harbour. The museum is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (until 6 p.m. in January). Museum tickets are free, but if you want to traipse around any of the shops and submarines, you'll be charged extra. For more information, visit the website.
