  • A wonderful place to visit that is educational and fun! Definitely one of my top 5 hidden gems in Hobart and a must see if you want to immerse yourself in Tasmanian history and culture!
  • Really enjoyed discovering this little museum! Plus, the man at the counter was really friendly and offered a discount rate to both of us! The museum has a very interesting collection of miniature ships, replicas and remaining items from shipwrecks! It was really fascinating to discover some stories about Tasmanian waters. Definitely something to do while in Hobart :)
