A surprisingly big museum, full of Tasmanian/Antarctic displays. Includes interesting 19th Century landscape and portraiture art, as well as Aboriginal art and history. Recommended.

The museum has free entry, and is surprisingly large! We entered shortly before closing time, so weren't able to explore the whole museum. However the museum was interactive, interesting, and in a beautiful building. Recommended for a rainy day in Hobart!
