We have expected to see more, honestly. Even if the entrance ticket AUD 9 is not high, anyway you cannot finish visiting a museum in 15 minutes or less. They definitely need more exhibits!!

We got there very late, we were only charged $5 but had a little over 1/2 hour to walk through. So it wasn't comprehensive but they have some wonderful displays and Tasmania's maritime history. Would habe loved to spend much, much longer here

We had a look around this museum and there was so much to see. It was very cheap and the volunteers were very friendly.

Part of Sullivan's cove, constitution dock that has several historical boats, mostly related to either fishing or the history of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Small area but worth a visit and combine with Mawsons hut replica.
