Jervis Bay Maritime Museum

The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum features a world renowned collection of maritime artefacts and navigational and surveying instruments. The Museum 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 a number of exhibition spaces which house changing art, craft and heritage based shows.

The Museum is home to the historic Lady Denman ferry and other historic vessels.

Located in Huskisson, Jervis Bay, 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, fish feeding pond, boathouse and historic buildings.

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 people. The Indigenous culture of the area is outlined in the Jervis Bay History exhibition.

Also onsite is a great giftware shop, specialising in nautical, local and tourist products.
