Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A well laid out museum with galleries about the Aboriginies, Antarctic exhibitions as well as Australia animals and birds. We arrived on the first day of the Epoch exhibition which was interesting.

Really enjoyed our visit. Underestimated what was available to view. Good displays, well laid out. Excellent exhibits on indigenous culture plus fauna and flora.

Hints : take your time, allow more time. A lot to absorb but it's definitely worth it

Wow...loved this museum and art gallery. Great history raising awareness of Australia's appalling treatment of its First Nations peoples and convicts. Loved seeing the Tasmanian Tiger, mind-blowing art displays in a building that will turn 200 years old in 2024.

Wonderful Museum & although our time was limited, we really appreciated all the work that has been put into the "Twist" exhibition & very though provocing works of art. We were particularly touched by the works by Ursula Halpin & Bern Emmerichs. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly & informative & our grandson loved the children's gallery.

This place is everything you could want in a museum. Heaps of detailed history into the natural wildlife of Tasmania, as well as some very interesting art pieces that explore other events including the convict past. Their is no entry fee but a donation is offered and fair as this place is incredibly important for preservation and future generational understanding.

We went to the museum expecting more art. It's a combination of nature/science exhibits and art gallery; while the artwork was limited we found the science of the Arctic to be fascinating. We spent less than one hour there but appreciate that Hobart is a small city and the museum is a lovely space.

Fantastic selection of local art. Plenty of information about the local area and Australian animals. A really cool section on Antarctica as well. Could have spent hours here.

We loved the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery as it had the perfect amount of collections to not be overwhelming. The museum encompasses the state’s oldest public building, the 1808 Commissariat Provision and is the 2nd oldest museum in Australia. The origins in the collections is from the country’s oldest scientific society, the Royal Society of Tasmania, which was established in 1843.

We enjoyed the Ningina Tunapri exhibit of the aboriginal people; the geological and natural history exhibit that contained native plants & animals, particularly of the Tasmanian tiger; and the Islands to Ice exhibit that showed the Antarctica & southern ocean places, people & animals. Free entrance for the budget conscience traveller, though please leave a donation for the museum upkeep.

Everyone raves about MONA, which is worth a visit, but if you want a differrent experience close to the CBD, and waterfront this historic building is really worth visiting. it was previously the Customs House, and is full of history, the displays are excellent with something for all ages, but for the history buffs have a look at the Bond store a real glimpse of early Tasmanian history. regular floor talks and activities. I always reccomend TMAG to anyone visiting Tasmania. The cafe is also well worth a visit

Loved the Antartica exhibit and Frank Harley’s stereoscopic pictures. Well worth a visit and close to the water for a stroll afterwards
