A great museum & gallery
Apr 2021
A great museum to visit with kids and great school holiday activities on offer too. The children's gallery wasn't yet open which we would have loved to visit but nonetheless the kids loved the museum and gallery

Been to Hobart many times, First time at this museum, wonderful.
Apr 2021
I don't know how I have ever not been here before given I love museums but alas after 20 years of visiting the region every couple of years or so I finally went into this wonderful and informative exhibit. Well worth a look if you like art, Tasmanian history, Antarctic explorers, and several other great displays. Will definetly be going back.

Good gallery and museum

Loved the little gallery, really friendly staff with good customer service.
The museum was great with all of Mawson’s details, and a cafe to rest in.

There is so much to see you need to allow more time than you think & take your time to soak it all up

Not as I expected
Mar 2021
I love art and I love history but this gallery seems to be missing a little something....like the amount of art that is on offer. To little old, too much contemporary. With such rich history I'm sure you would have so much more to offer.

The Museum
Mar 2021
It was ok and nothing to complain as entrance was free. Some of the sections were closed possibly for a later reopening.
The Antarctic section was highly informative.

Disheartening
Mar 2021 • Friends
During redevelopment (during covid) huge percentage of galleries are closed. As a local taking someone there I was appalled & embarrassed. May as well keep it closed till works finished

Not quite as interesting as I hoped it would be.

The best part was the art gallery. There were John Glovers and other landscape paintings of his era that were very good. Little else held my attention.

Take a free guided tour
Feb 2021
I wanted to see the art collection snd the Tasmania Tiger room but when I joined a free guided tour I went to the Bond store building instead. A fascinating tour. Of course I checked into the other stuff as well.
