Set in the historic seaside town of Port Albert established in 1841 the Gippsland Regional Maritime Museum is housed in the former Bank of Victoria built in 1862 to receive gold from Gippsland’s goldfields. From the moment you step inside the museum you will appreciate the excellent exhibits on display. Some give vivid insights into the early history of Port Albert as the gateway to Gippsland, an important port for the squatting era and for supporting the gold rushes of the 1850s and 60s. Others trace the ongoing history of the area where fishing in Bass Strait and the infrastructure that supported it was paramount. We are family friendly with items of interest for all ages and several interactive push-button displays to ensure a visit is memorable.
