You simply cannot come to Hobart without factoring in a visit to TMAG. The recent upgrade of this waterfront icon has lifted it to a new dimension of visitor experience. So much history abounds on this island, much of it hidden in the labyrinthine corridors of this treasure trove. Recently they have made huge inroads to dusting off the manky... More

I went by myself to the musuem as other members of my family didn't want to go. I had an enjoyable 2 hours wondering through the exhibits and learning about the area. I found it well laid out with good information on the exhibits. There were some family groups with smaller children which seemed to be enjoying the experience as... More

When by yourself a quiet and reflective experience, always enjoyable, with time consumed effortlessly. A guided tour adds to the experience but the chance to wander around soaking in the experience and your own thoughts is an opportunity TMAG presents that more people should take.

The exhibition on Antartica is especially pleasing. The galleries are well thought out. However, the Art gallery is quite limited.

I visited the Museum with my two young granddaughters. Some areas were very good but several sections were a little "confused" with a variety of items that did not appear to be related. I don't believe it is as good as it was several years ago. The cafe food was very poor and I wish we had walked across the... More

I took my 1yr old niece here, although she enjoyed crawling around the floor, I enjoyed the exhibits they had on the history of Tasmania. I only wish I had had more time to see all the sections. The staff were also incredibly helpful and friendly.

We chose this as it was a rainy day and preferred not to do the botanic gardens. Loved the range of interesting rooms featuring the local material. Particularly liked the Antarctic display. As it turned out did not rain until much later but we were not disappointed.

Again another place to see. Allow plenty of time to see everything. Tasmania is the best place for it's history and we all learnt so much. A tour guide is great to tell you all about it.

Good for a visit and if you had kids, there is usually some play stations they can work at and do craft work. Great on a rainy day too to entertain kids.

TMAG is a favourite place to while away a few hours. The permanent exhibitions are interesting and a nice showcase of Tassie if you have friends or relatives staying with you. The special (rotating) exhibitions are always absorbing and change every few months. The current Art and Science with its French explorers exhibits is beautifully curated and a fascinating insight...
