Description

The Batavia Gallery is the centrepiece of the Shipwreck Galleries. The gallery houses the reconstructed remains of the VOC ship Batavia, excavated by archaeologists in the 1970s.

After an extensive treatment and restoration process, the remains of the ship’s stern were rebuilt in this gallery.

The gallery also features a skeleton of one of the people murdered on the Abrolhos Islands, a replica of the impressive portico façade – carried as cargo to be used as a grand entrance to the city of Batavia - a reconstruction of the Captain’s cabin, and numerous other artefacts recovered from the wreck.

There is an elevated viewing deck to look down upon the stern of the Batavia, and appreciate the size and scope of the wreck and gallery.
