Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

There’s plenty of history to soak up on a visit to Hobart, Australia’s second-oldest settlement. Get a lesson in history with a visit to Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) established in 1843 by the Royal Society of Tasmania - a scientific society - and is the second-oldest museum in all of Australia.

You’ll see archaeological and colonial relics, Aboriginal artifacts, old photographs, ephemera and fine examples of colonial decorative arts.

The museum underwent a renovation in 2013, and since then has reopened with new public spaces, exhibition areas, a visitor center and a cafe.


Practical Info

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is on Macquarie Street behind Sullivan’s Cove in the heart of Hobart. Entrance is free, but donations are accepted.
