This is not a big museum but it has some interesting displays and at the story about Hobart's maritime history. There was also a floor dedicated to Tasmania's contribution to WW1 RAN. It was part of the War Memorial's travelling exhibition.

This museum has many exhibits from the convict era to the military heritage, which shows Tasmania's relationship to the sea. The seafarers daring adventures knew no boundaries as many lost their lives but many did succeed. Wonderful display and friendly volunteer staff.

What a great Maritime Museum. We thought that nothing would rival San Francisco's but this place does. Allow a couple of hours!
