Fremantle Maritime museum is an impressive building , and so it should be. The taxpayers spent 35 million dollars on it. What a shame someone decided that a saving on outgoings of 3% could be made by not opening on Wednesdays! Why not close every day and save 100%?


We visited an annexe of the museum dealing with shipwrecks late Tuesday afternoon. The woman at the desk suggested visiting the main museum tomorrow since there was an entry fee and we would not have time to see everything this late in the day.

We arranged to stay another night in Fremantle and next morning (Wednesday) drove in to the museum. The people on the door, with much embarrassment, frustration and apology told us about the money saving logic. I guess with that kind of thinking it is not surprising that the Shipwreck annexe doesn’t know when the main museum is open.
