The Australian National Maritime Museum is looking very swish at the moment. A favorite has always been the full-sized model of an American whaleboat, along with whalemen's scrimshaw, of which this swift is a fine example:
In case you are wondering, a swift holds a hank of woolen yarn so it can be wound into a ball.
There is also a very good exhibit devoted to HMS Sirius, which foundered off Norfolk Island in March 1790, including an anchor that was salvaged from the reef.
Definitely worth a lengthy visit, if you happen to be in Sydney.
