  • Very interesting section dedicated to the history of Tasmanian railways. A good number of original artefacts on display. Free entry too. The hands on science section seemed to be a big hit with the schoolchildren. Unfortunately a number of exhibitions were closed at the time of my visit due to a forthcoming events.
  • I always enjoy learning about Australian history. The museum was fascinating with facts about the Tasmanian tiger and footage. I have first fleet ancestry, so I have an interest there. The aboriginal people have been though suffering from the white population.
