CHILDREN can climb aboard a giant replica submarine during the Maritime Museum’s Family Fun Day on Sunday.

As well as the chance to explore the submarine, children can also participate in a number of activities including craft, face painting, cookie decorating, colouring and a screening of Finding Nemo in 3D at 11am.

It is also the last chance for locals to enjoy the Voyage to the Deep exhibition, which closes on Sunday.

WA Museum chief executive Alec Coles said the exhibition’s explorable Nautilus submarine had proved a popular drawcard for local children.

“They will be able to take the controls at the helm, peer through the periscopes, crank the propeller, test out the bunks and explore Captain Nemo’s Cabinet of Curiosities full of wonderful marine specimens,” he said.

“There’s even a bubbly pipe organ to play and a galley full of strange foods to discover.”

The free Family Fun Day is at the Maritime Museum from 9.30am to 5pm.
