I learned more about Australia’s indigenous history in 2 hours than in 12 years of schooling

A great little gallery and museum to learn about the history of Tasmania’s unique fauna. But also a confronting look at the history of one of Australia’s first colonised areas. The staff were all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable!

One for the families

A great gallery in a fabulous old building. It is not too large to be overwhelming but still includes plenty of interesting exhibits. The young children's play-based was fantastic and the displays of Indigenous history and local wildlife was also very engaging. It's all free to enter too, which is wonderful!

Too cold
Jun. 2021
Had a lovely time at the TMAG with some visiting family. They went into the retail shop to purchase some souvenirs and we couldn’t stay in there long as it was absolutely freezing. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Couldn’t believe they said there is no heating in there.

A wealth of inexperience for FREE
Jun. 2021
I adore museums and galleries and in Hobart was very impressed with the state Museum & Art Gallery. Such a welcoming gesture to have FREE entry and I had a volunteer walk up to me to check if he could offer any explanation. We ended up having quite a meaningful chat about the various pieces on display.
I really enjoyed the timber flooring and framing of the beautiful artworks. I certainly gained more knowledge on Australian history. The rich current exhibition, Paradise Lost: Thomas Griffiths Wainewright was quite intriguing.
Located near the docks, the Museum is a very worthwhile visit.

Very Interesting
May 2021
We recently attended during a trip to Hobart and found the museum and art gallery extremely interesting. It wasn't a planned visit but one that we did as we were walking past. We were very impressed, the museum show cases such beautiful artifacts and history. Free entry and a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Worth a visit
May 2021
Only small and a bit eclectic but worth a visit. More a museum than an art gallery I guess. Surprisingly if you are interested in the Antarctic, you will enjoy this museum. Located in an historic building and close to docks, it is worth a look. Amongst its exhibitions covering all things Tasmanian, there is currently a lovely exhibition on South Korean women divers!!!

A great museum to visit with kids and great school holiday activities on offer too. The children's gallery wasn't yet open which we would have loved to visit but nonetheless the kids loved the museum and gallery

Apr. 2021
I don't know how I have ever not been here before given I love museums but alas after 20 years of visiting the region every couple of years or so I finally went into this wonderful and informative exhibit. Well worth a look if you like art, Tasmanian history, Antarctic explorers, and several other great displays. Will definetly be going back.
