“Friendly volunteers - very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery was closed for renovation so we ended up next door as suggested by signs and we were very glad we did. Inexpensive, small but very interesting and a nice mix of objects, text, illusrations, models and video presentations.

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This museum is full of interesting information and staffed by dedicated volunteers.
Living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we were interested to learn something of the maritime history from another part of the world and the museum helped us to do that.

“Really knowledgable volunteers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a small museum, run on a shoestring. It is well worth a visit. The volunteer guides are a source of fascinating information and some of the vessels that you will see in the harbour are better explained here.
