We visited with two kids under 10. They loved it as much as we did.

The display was gorgeous and extremely detailed. Well worth the quick drive from Hobart

My 4, 2 & 1 year olds were the least interested in what would have taken years of hard work and effort to build. On a adults point of view some of the story viewing is sad and depressing of the convict times and illustrates the unfair governing back in those times. No my seen. Certainly a lot of detail and the whole concept itself is unique but at $18 for a 10min walk through it was a good choice for us.

If you go to Richmond Village then I would recommend a visit. The owner has painstakingly recreated a miniature village of Hobart Town as it was in the 1820s. A little on the expensive side for what it is, but you cannot fault the care and attention that gone into creating this. Access to umbrellas was a nice touch as it was almost 40C when we were there and keeping the sun off was helpful.

Spent about an hour walking around this little town trying to find the Tassie Tiger without success! Would have been a great spot to visit with kids!

very good rpresentation of Hobart in the 1800's, amazingly detailed buildings and street scenes which you can compare to modern day photos, the kids had fun looking for the 4 hidden items, that lady killing a snake was really hard to find.
