Due to COVID-19 safety restrictions all tickets must be purchased in advance online.

Our tickets allow you to come and go as you please, so why not explore the surrounding Darling Harbour precinct while you’re here.

Tickets are available for your choice of weekday or weekend sessions. To reflect the reduced availability of some museum programs, our ticket prices have been also been reduced. Head HERE for a current list of events / vessels / program closures.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the museum!

Please note: To ensure the safety of all guests, staff and volunteers we’ve had to create session times to manage capacity within the museum. Your session time provides you access to the museum at any time from the beginning to the end of your listed session. You do not need to arrive at the very beginning of your session. However, we do require visitors to vacate the museum at the end of the session time listed on their ticket.
