“One visit is not enough”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

There really is so much to see here. There's a real wealth of artefacts and information in depth. The recreated chapel, schoolroom and shop are excellent. I'm not sure about the room full of cameras - as far as I know there's no link between Kodak and the Channel - maybe this should have it's own museum somewhere else? That aside, the curators and those who donated objects, photos and information should be proud of themselves.

“Channel Heritage Centre-well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

A comprehensive small museum about 15-20 mins south of Hobart in Margate on the Channel Highway (continuation of A6 Southern Outlet from Hobart). Extensive artifacts and memorabilia of settlers in the area, Good insight to life in the 19th century & early to mid 20th century. Good home made food in the small cafe. All on single level. Ample parking.

“Channel heritage centre”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Well set out displays in a modern building. Also attached, is a reseach/reading room.
Allow 2 hours to look at everything. Cafe is good for a sandwich, light hot meal or coffee. Small gift shop with books and gifts.
Friendly staff, good easy parking, toilets clean.
