Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

Located on Hobart's historic waterfront, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) has recently undergone a spectacular $30 million redevelopment.
The second oldest museum in Australia, TMAG has its origins in the collections of the country's oldest scientific society, the Royal Society of Tasmania, which was established in 1843.
Opened in March 2013, the redevelopment includes more than 2,000 square metres of new public and exhibition spaces, a centralised visitor services hub and a new Courtyard Cafe.
Visitors can now experience more of this unique site than ever before, including a fascinating range of nationally significant archaeological material, some of which has been hidden for over 150 years.
TMAG has something to offer visitors of all ages and interests whether you are family seeking an educational and engaging experience, a tourist seeking to discover more about Tasmania's history or an art lover.
Join a free guided tour or browse the galleries to experience TMAG's rich blend of permanent collections, touring and temporary exhibitions and special displays.
Admission is free but donations are always welcome.
Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday: 1000 - 1600. Closed Anzac Day, Christmas Day and Good

Review to win entry OVER 4 years AGO

Little bit overtaken by MONA now, TMAG is still worth a visit if you're in town especially with kids. Free general entry and some good exhibits, including interactive stuff for the younger ones. Easy to access in town, good for a rainy day.

Great outing for the kids

Parts are excellent e.g. Antarctic and forest protest history , but the classic animal collections (and lack of) look like its been put together by a designer rather than scientist - the big hall is wasted - where are the whale skeletons, albatross and the shark models ? Instead we have a weird tunnel of assorted goods that look like an auction storeroom... I came away feeling it was a tourist or school exhibit rather than a classic museum. The building and restoration are stunning - the exhibits feel rationed. Not interesting enough considering the vast collections they have.

very very good. Children love the displays!! Island to ice is wonderfull. The Info is fantastic! It is a great hands on experience! Best of all it is a free activity with the kids!!

the kids room downstairs is also worth a visit, hands on and fun!

They make a lovely coffee and a great morning tea downstairs in the cafe. Worth a visit, for sure!!!

Well worth a visit when you are in Hobart. We did the 2.30pm free guided tour which consisted of an overview of all the exhibits and included some general information about the history of Hobart and Tasmania which puts the exhibits into context.
