Maritime Museum

This week we are doing a project on oceans. We started off our study with a trip to the Australian National Maritime Museum.  The best parts of the museum are the ships and submarine moored outside. The volunteer guides told us lots of interesting facts as we climbed and crouched through the vessels. Here are some pictures from the day.
