  • Superb facility, with theatre, gallery spaces and studios in a charming and historic building. Also contains some terrific shops selling artisan wares and gourmet food. Located on the Hobart waterfront, with some of the most lovely views just out the door.
  • Building is a mix of old and new . Quiet atmosphere and reminds me a bit of olden europe. Photos of galleries taken with permission from top gallery and the artist tenant galleries.
  • Ok, unusual art nice place.
  • What an eclectic array of art, crafts and cafes
  • It offers a very authentic view of the Tasmanian art scene though the museum itself is quite small. The staff are very friendly though and are usually willing to explain the background of the art pieces on display

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.
