The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum is a tourist attraction in Huskisson where you can discover local history, unique characters and engaging stories! Featuring a world-renowned collection of maritime artefacts and navigational and surveying instruments, the Museum also exhibits a range of nautical equipment, models, photographs, paintings, drawings and objects relating to the history and heritage of the Jervis Bay area.

The museum also has several exhibition spaces which house changing art, craft and heritage-based shows and is home to the historic Lady Denman ferry - the only surviving wooden Sydney Harbour Ferry as well as other historic vessels.

The Museum enjoys a waterfront location on Currambene Creek. Positioned in a beautiful bush setting in Jervis Bay, the complex includes a large recreation area with native gardens, a mangrove boardwalk, pond, boathouse and historic buildings that can be visited anytime.

The Jervis Bay region has a rich history of Indigenous culture, and the museum sits on the land traditionally owned by the Dharawal and Dhurga speaking people. The Indigenous culture of the area is outlined in the Jervis Bay History exhibition.

Children under 16 receive free entry when accompanied by an adult. Ask about our free treasure hunt!
