Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series of paintings at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG). While the cricket in Hobart is getting a lot of publicity, there is also an excellent display of paintings at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart by Australian artist Sidney Nolan on the theme of the 19th century bushranger Ned Kelly done in 1946 and 1947. The paintings are on loan from the National Gallery in Canberra but here in Hobart you can get up close to the 26 paintings and admire the colour and the story telling in the art. The exhibition ends on 20 February 2022. Don’t miss this special opportunity to see the Ned Kelly paintings while you are in Hobart. Entry is free so you can visit as many times as you wish.

Loved the amazing exhibits. So many things to see.
Of particular interest was the Sidney Nolan Ned Kelly series, which was brilliant.
Enjoyed learning about Antarctic.

Whilst many art galleries and museums have a large building, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is house in a small historical building. One wall is covered with portraits. Sidney Nolan's Ned Kelly series was on display. 25 artworks. Free admission too! The art is varied and interesting. The museum likewise. Good variety of items, including a growing butterly collection. The Museum is seeking public donations to grow the collection.

A great little gallery and museum to learn about the history of Tasmania’s unique fauna. But also a confronting look at the history of one of Australia’s first colonised areas. The staff were all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable!

A great gallery in a fabulous old building. It is not too large to be overwhelming but still includes plenty of interesting exhibits. The young children's play-based was fantastic and the displays of Indigenous history and local wildlife was also very engaging. It's all free to enter too, which is wonderful!

Had a lovely time at the TMAG with some visiting family. They went into the retail shop to purchase some souvenirs and we couldn’t stay in there long as it was absolutely freezing. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Couldn’t believe they said there is no heating in there.

I adore museums and galleries and in Hobart was very impressed with the state Museum & Art Gallery. Such a welcoming gesture to have FREE entry and I had a volunteer walk up to me to check if he could offer any explanation. We ended up having quite a meaningful chat about the various pieces on display.
I really enjoyed the timber flooring and framing of the beautiful artworks. I certainly gained more knowledge on Australian history. The rich current exhibition, Paradise Lost: Thomas Griffiths Wainewright was quite intriguing.
Located near the docks, the Museum is a very worthwhile visit.

We recently attended during a trip to Hobart and found the museum and art gallery extremely interesting. It wasn't a planned visit but one that we did as we were walking past. We were very impressed, the museum show cases such beautiful artifacts and history. Free entry and a great way to spend a couple of hours.
