Located on Hobart's historic waterfront, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) is the second oldest museum in Australia and has its origins in the collections of the country's oldest scientific society, the Royal Society of Tasmania, which was established in 1843.
TMAG has something to offer visitors of all ages and interests, whether you are family seeking an educational and engaging experience, a tourist seeking to discover more about Tasmania's history or an art lover. The museum incorporates more than 2,000 square metres of public and exhibition spaces, a centralised visitor services hub and a Courtyard Café.
Join a free guided tour or browse the galleries to experience TMAG's rich blend of permanent collections, touring and temporary exhibitions and special displays.
Admission is free but donations are always welcome.
