It was ok, it is $16 for an adult ticket, which is a lot considering what you get. There is not much of a museum, just one room with not much in it, a boring video and not enough seats. The ship itself is good, but you walk on the deck and there are a few cabins inside at the back, but most of the ship is empty for the cargo. It is ok, but is certainly not worth the entrance fee.

When the Polly Woodside was launched in 1885, she was the last of a dying breed. This hardy steel-hulled sailing ship was made for hauling cargo, with a hard-working crew to man her. The men who crewed these tall ships worked hard for their money. The Polly Woodside is moored on South Wharf, you can get a good view from outside.

Melbourne’s own tall ship, this is a piece of maritime history. This ship is in its own dock and is accessible to the public when open. Interactive displays and staff in character uniforms. Hopefully things will return to normality soon.

The Polly Woodside was launched in Belfast in1885. She was built by William J Woodside. The Polly Woodside is a three-masted iron-hulled barque. As she criss-crossed the oceans, the era of sail was coming to an end. We are lucky to have her; she is a work-horse, not a thoroughbred.

The Polly Woodside was built in Belfast. She was not a thoroughbred, she was a workhorse. She is the last of the tall ships. She is usually open for boarding on holidays. If she is not open, you can get a good view from South Wharf. She's still a good looking ship, despite her age.
