  • Went to this museum as the larger Tasmanian museum doesn't open on Mondays in winter. Fascinating array of artifacts from Tasmanian maritime history. Well worth a visit to spend a couple of hours.  more »
  • Interesting and informative. Great displays and models. Will take at least 1 hour to visit. Well worth the $10 entry  more »
  • So many interesting displays and so much interesting history. I loved it. I would have liked more time.  more »

  • Interesting and we'll attended by volunteer helpers.
  • Worthwhile museum to see the history of Australia's discovery
  • Some interesting displays, but not a very big museum.
  • Meh. Takes about 45mins but perhaps you could stretch to 2 hours if you read absolutely everything. Staff are friendly. Very small but well laid out. If you're into ships in a big way, I suspect this would be fascinating...

Where to stay in Hobart

Hobart features a varied selection of budget and mid-range rooms located within striking distance of the central business district. You can choose from single rooms in small but comfortable hotels, or spacious suites with sweeping views of the Derwent River. If you want to avoid the central areas, look for rooms in North Hobart, where you can stay moments away from some of the city's finest restaurants. Throughout the city, backpacker hostels and pubs with rooms for rent provide another affordable alternative for those traveling on a shoestring.
