  • This was an interesting museum that contains information that primarily relates to the history of Tasmania. I really liked the exhibition on Antarctica.  more »
  • Had a stroll through and while it's a very small space for a Mudeum/art gallery combo, there are a few points of interest-needs work though  more »

  • Great museum. Free entry and easy access for stroller. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice modern open and clean buildings with very well set up and interesting exhibits. Excellent Thylacine exhibition with a taxidermy Tasmanian Tiger from the 1920's, skeletons, furs and plenty of written information. Well worth a visit! Perfect for a cold Hobart afternoon indoors.
  • We enjoyed our visit to this architectural delight. There was an exhibition of indigenous shell jewellery which was fascinating but my highlight was talking about the architecture itself with a tour guide, as she explained the many changes the collection of buildings has gone through. I love the way old and new have been merged in a way that brings out the best of both.
