Travellers and Traders in the Indian Ocean World

In one of the first major Indian Ocean exhibitions to be staged by a museum anywhere in the world, the WA Maritime Museum explores the rich history of this vast and mysterious ocean and reveal some of its secrets from 31 October 2016 - 23 April 2017.

Merchants and sailors have crossed the Indian Ocean for thousands of years and 70% of the world's goods continue to do so today. This vast expanse of water was the world’s first highway and has been the centre of world economy for millenia, but how well do we know it?

This exhibition, fittingly located in the Western Australian Maritime Museum in Fremantle on the edge of the ocean, takes you on your own journey across the Indian Ocean to discover its rich history through ancient objects and stories about its traders, explorers and the many different peoples who inhabit its shores. Visit museum.wa.gov.au for more information and tickets.
