A great way to spend a cold and wet afternoon in Hobart. Quiet- well except when some kids kept ringing a ships bell, but they had fun. I learnt a lot about Tasmanias maritime history

A cold winter's day so we spent over 4 hours at the maritime Museum. With my 90 year old friend we had all the time we needed to read the incredible amount of information given with each display. The history of shipping around Tasmania and through the Bass Strait was extremely interesting with over 10,000 ships lost in just under... More

This is a wonderful experience, well setup and with plenty of info on Hobart and the people and ships who created it. Well worth the money and time to give a true insight to Tasmania

Tasmania is surround be sea and as such has a rich maritime history which is worth exploring while in Hobart. The museum contains many artefacts from a much harsher and tougher time. Learn about European settlement in Tasmania through to the commencement of ferry travel from the island to the mainland. The volunteers who work at here as knowledgeable and... More

Lovely ship models make the back bone of the displays here. Overall the museum could do with some more "artefacts".

Nice little museum with a lot of maritime history of Tasmania occupying the ground floor of the building. This museum is staffed by volunteers only and receives no government funding whatsoever, hence there is a $9 per adult admission fee (family rates are also given which would mitigate the cost a bit). We felt it was worth the price, as... More
