  • A very nice museum. Permanent exhibitions are free, temporary ones go for a small fee. The 2019 exhibition on dinosaurs is very interesting, and well thought out. Kids have plenty to do and see, many things are interactive. Very good for curious kids, who keep on discovering new things at each visit.
  • The museum was great to see. There was a dinosaur expo on when we went admission was $15 each and it was good but not very big. Very interactive for kids though. The museum was interesting too some great artworks and friendly staff that were happy to discuss some of them with me. And an interesting section on coins.
  • I Love the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. I have been visiting and revisiting since my earliest memories of the megafauna display, which is still being maintained by the always amazing staff. The lady who greets people as they come through the sliding door is incredibly eccentric, and I Love it. As do all the kids, of course. ;)
  • Kids loved the school holidays activities that the museum runs daily from 11am to 2pm. Then they wanted to explore the rest of the museum after their activities. We go every year because the kids like the museum so much. Each year they have a different theme, so it makes it more interesting for the kids to enjoy
  • Beautiful, historic museum that sheds light on many interesting aspects of Tasmania's past. Has been upgraded and looked after over the years and is still a brilliant place to bring the kids. Love it.
