The museum has developed since the last Queenscliff lifeboat was offered to the Borough of Queenscliffe for care and display. A committee was formed at a public meeting on March 13 1980 to investigate how the lifeboat could be preserved. This led to the formation of the Queenscliffe Lifeboat Preservation Society Incorporated which oversaw the early stages of restoration of the vessel and the establishment of the Maritime museum which opened in 1986 to display the lifeboat. The Museum has since expanded to cover the maritime history of Queenscliff, Southern Port Phillip and the Bass Strait interface. In 1998 the name was changed to the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum to better reflect the ever expanding collection.

Over the ensuing years a boatshed has been built to house exhibits and provide workshop space. Artefacts continue to be added to the Collection, donated by individuals, families, collectors and companies.
