  • This is the replica of Antarctica's Mawsons Hut, great to see how they lived and worked in Antarctica, don't be shocked, its very small to see, not a lot but simply the true replica in it's size and a...  more »
  • Great to view in real life what these explorers had to live with at this destination. Many items of interest to ponder in the location.  more »
  • We were all totally absorbed in the history of this remarkable man and the equally amazing people who accompanied him. Allow at least two hours as there is much to read and take in.  more »

  • This is a good little exhibition of what Mawson's hut on Antarctica was like. Very helpful, knowledgeable staff. This is about an hour for people the really like history. Would not recommend for little kids as they will be board and asking when it will be over the whole time.
  • A highly realistic and respectful replica of Mawson's but with terrific visual & sound images of the hardships he & his team of men & Huskies went through over 100 years ago. The many artefacts & film & photographic records provide engrossing records of the journey. Volunteers provide additional information if you wish to know more. Highly recommended.
  • Entry fee is modest and the money goes toward the preservation of the original hut in Antarctica. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The displays tell the story of the early scientific exploration of Antarctica by Mawson and his team that will leave you in awe of their ingenuity and indomitable spirit. A great place for adults and children alike.
  • Good and small museum to understand the history of Australians to explore the unkown Antarctic Continent. The entrance fee will be used to maintain the real Mawson's Hut. In the museum, you can read the stories and the diary to feel the tough environment and how much pain the team had suffered. Worth visiting when you come to Hobart.
  • The admission is fair ($15) and goes entirely towards the conservation and restoration of the original huts in Antarctica. There’s a lot of information about Antarctic expiration and Hobart’s role in it! There’s also a good amount of artifacts on display as well. Worth the visit if you’re into that sort of thing
