A great little museum. We spent about 2 hours there. You cant take drinks in so we were met by a friendly woman with a map who checked in my water bottle and showed us the exhibition space. We learnt a lot about the local aboriginals, early settlers, animals, nature and the tasmanian fires in 1967. Its nice having some... More

This museum has so much information in it you could go back the next day. It's brilliant that it's free, however the exhibitions seem a bit random in the lay out. It's too much for the average tourist to do in one visit. I'd recommend picking the exhibits that interest you most and focus on them. Otherwise it's information overload.... More

We went on a week day in school holidays and they had kids activity week! It was great. My grandson loved the whole museum - except the portraits - he said the eyes followed you around! The activities they had set up were fantastic. They certainly converted an 8 year old into a museum art gallery fan. He wanted to... More

We went there as our walking tour guide strongly recommended it. Children are exposed to Tasmanian arts, history and culture. It is very near to the hotel area.

A friend suggest I visited this attraction and I'm so glad I did. There is a diverse range of art, history and science, definitely something for all the family. I spent half a day looking at the different exhibits and enjoying all the audio visual that were available. Of particular interest was the exhibit on the Dutch influence in the... More

Went to the Museum today and found it very interesting. If you can park in their carpark it is very easy to get into

The Old Bond Store section of museum has a wonderful display of Tasmanian history. The other sections of museum and gallery are spacious and well set out. A lovely gift shop and good coffee shop. Helpful staff.

Firstly, this museum is free, donation requested. Taking photos is OK too. This is a modern, family friendly establishment with things laid out in an interesting way with plenty of interactive displays. In fact the building itself is part of the display. There is an area for the juniors. They seem to have a program of frequently changing displays. There... More
