  • Centrally located. It was a bright, sunny day. I sat outside and had a cuppa and cake. Very relaxed. Afterward joined a free tour. The volunteer guide was knowledgeable, knew her history.
  • Free and very good, great variety of artworks. Some of the buildings haven't been changed since the time of the convicts/ settlers. Took a super interesting free tour with Rosie (volunteer). Such a knowledgeable and friendly lady! She clearly loves doing what she does :)
  • Wonderful staff who are friendly and smile at you. The museum is small but makes for a good quick visit without getting too tired . Took me 1.30 min. And I always had the next day to see more since it's free !
  • The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the museum and art gallery. The kids love the Antarctic expedition and the art gallery. They also enjoyed the hands on exhibitions.agreat time for the family
  • Amazing place with an extensive collection of historical artifacts and background data. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Hobart.

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.
