  • Looking for something to do for an easy day found us at the museum. Great interactive area for the big and little kids. The museum was very interesting with lots to see.  more »
  • The museum and art gallery are now two locations. They should probably be split up on TripAdvisor. They’re quite a walk apart. Both are free entry! 👌🏼 Museum - 4/5 A few exhibits were closed...  more »
  • 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.
