  • An excellent insight to the Antarctic expedition with the volunteers knowledge fantastic and the visual displays exceptional. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting to see how they lived while on the expedition and to see some elements of the story of the adventure. Staff were knowledgeable and quite happy to give some background info
  • I loved the place and the knowledgeable people there. Definitely recommend reading all the information.
  • If you are interested in the history of Antartica, well worth a visit. Take the time to read all the stories, absorb and consider the achievements and what the men and dogs experienced. May seem small and not that great if the topic does not already interest you before going in.
  • Excellent for the Mawson buff. Enthusiastic staff.

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.
