Discover how the humble shipping container has revolutionised the way we live!
This free outdoor exhibition lifts the lid on the history and impact of containerisation—visitors can literally ‘step inside the box’ to learn about shipping, ports, cargo, the impact of containerisation on the ocean, the origins of everyday objects and even container architecture.
Container is housed in six colourful 20-foot shipping containers peppered along the port, from outside WA Maritime Museum trailing down to E Shed Markets.
Developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney, Container comes to Fremantle Port thanks to an innovative partnership between WA Maritime Museum, Fremantle Ports and Freight & Logistics Council WA.
