There are some rare collections of arts and drawings of the Aboriginal people in this museum. There are some narrations about Aboriginal history in Tasmania. Pretty nice museum with friendly staff and the entry is free of charge and donation is welcomed.

Even the building itself is interesting. It was not very busy when we went and very relaxing. There are a number of permanent exhibits and some that change. If you love early Australian history its a must to see.

We spent a few hours here browsing the numerous and varied exhibits / rooms. The gallery is inside a really old building that has a great vibe.

Wonderful museum to visit in the heart of Hobart. So many wonderful exhibits, beautifully displayed. Learn about indigenous Tasmanians, first arrivals and the whaling industry. I learnt so much for this visit and thoroughly enjoyed it. A must.

This is a small museum that's in the CBD area. It's free to enter. Each floor covers something unique. I particularly liked the section on Tasmanian history. It also features natural history, local art, and more. A good escape.
