  • Beautiful displays, very interesting and friendly staff! Loved my visit there especially since it is free it is even better. Spent maximum of 2 hours there and learnt a lot about the history. One thing to note is if you have a bag I'd recommend using the lockers they provide(cost $2), you'd enjoy it more :) Overall great experience!
  • Great way to spend an afternoon. They have many different rooms and floors with different exhibits and focuses. There was a room with a lot of consumer goods and products that was fascinating to see. I believe it was on the main floor and definitely worth visiting.
  • This museum was truly a gem. I was impressed by the quality and variety of the exhibits. The buildings themselves were also interesting to see - especially the Aboriginal history building outside the main museum - don't miss this part (I nearly left the complex without entering it). Often features interesting temporary exhibits too. Well worth a visit for people visiting Hobart - especially when the weather packs in.
  • A great way to spend a morning or afternoon (or both). Had a great coffee in the museum cafe to start before interviewing ourselves in art and culture. It was all good but especially enjoyed the exhibition on the Remarkable Tasmanian Devil.
  • A great place to visit, and bring the kids.. always something interesting on display and great school holiday activities. Terrific location too, just opposite the harbour.
