  • We were there for 3 hours, including a tea break, and only saw part of it. We thought the displays were extremely well presented using the best of modern technology and materials. It is a confusing bu...  more »

  • Was very cool to see a taxidermied tasmanian tiger in the museum!
  • Its a fantastic museum and unlike other reviews I have had no problem taking my children there. I have found that the museum encourages children in a lovely way, there are "treasure" hunts for children to complete. I have found the staff to be kind and engaging. But if you're going to allow your kids to run nuts and touch the exhibits I think it is only right that staff will keep an eye on you.
  • Always a delight to visit TMAG! Everytime I'm there something new has been added to the collection. I particularly like the Bond store and "The power of change" exhibition. A great place to visit early on in your Tasmanian adventure as they do a great job of explaining the history of our state.
  • Interesting place. I was here last summer. One of the greatest attractions in Hobart you must visit. A lot of interesting local stories.
  • Really interesting exhibitions and pieces. The exhibition on migrants was incredibly fascinating. We just happened to go when there was a children's activity time so had to dodge kids running around but that was fine as it brought a new atmosphere that I've not seen in other museums which are generally quiet. I wish we had more time to see everything but we were cut short by the parking meter.
