Container - The Box That Changed The World Exhibition
Discover how the humble shipping container has revolutionised the way we live!
This free outdoor exhibition will lift 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.
In today's global world you may drink coffee from Brazil or a smoothie containing frozen fruit from China. You could be wearing clothes made in India, watching a TV made in Japan while sitting on a sofa containing wood from Argentina on a laminate floor manufactured in Sweden. All of this has been made possible by a rectangular steel box - the shipping container. Container is located at Fremantle Port, everyone is welcome along.
