My husband is a huge history and maritime buff. Me? Well, I’d prefer to go shopping on a rainy Tuesday afternoon. But the specky Maritime Museum in Fremantle offers free entry every 2nd Tuesday of each month. So we thought we’d check it out.
It’s basically a showcase of WA’s maritime endeavors – including Australia II (when we won America’s Cup in 83), a peak into the history of Freo, the Swan River, the fishing industry and our part in the Indian Ocean community etc.
I wouldn’t exactly say that it was a dull exhibition.
I just had other things on my mind. Such as how to stop my kid from pulling on the wooden boats suspended on wires, squishing his fingers in the interactive displays, and smearing his drool all over the glass display windows.
