TMAG as it is affectionately known has various spaces off a main court yard. I liked the Mawson photographic exhibition. Cafe had nice food and coffee too. Good place to see some of Hobart's early history, especially if the weather is poor outside.

Time made a choice between here and moma. This was the right decision. Brilliantly recently upgraded museum with plenty of information on the indigenous history and the growth and development of Hobart and wider Tasmania.

Really enjoyed my visit. I hadn't visited before but enjoyed the easy-to-take-in layout of all galleries including the bond store, as well as the friendly and helpful staff.

The new timber innovations are fantastic and the plan of the future proposal which includes much more more timber work is very exciting. I sincerely hope that the project receives the support it deserves.

Best wishes and thank you.

We had planned to visit the Museum and Art Gallery late one afternoon and allowed a couple of hours however we we loved this experience so much we returned for a few more hours the next morning. Beautiful exhibits and friendly, professional staff who were happy to share their knowledge and stories if asked. Wonderful place - do visit. Completely different to Mona and almost as good in our opinion.

Overall the new areas are amazing - we enjoyed the Bond Store area with the Aborginal gallery on the top floor and some TAS history on first floor. The main building is interesting, especially the Antarctic area and the art. However, some of the installations downstairs were no good - TMAG should focus on its core collections and not the modern art stuff - leave that to MONA.

This is a great museum and best of all it is free to enter. Well worth a visit for locals and tourist alike.
