Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery

Top choice museum in Central Hobart & the Waterfront

Incorporating Hobart’s oldest building, the Commissariat Store (1808), this revamped museum features Aboriginal and colonial relics and excellent wildlife displays. The gallery curates a collection of Tasmanian colonial art. There are free guided tours at 1pm and 2pm from Wednesday to Sunday (hordes of school kids might be a little less interested in proceedings than you are), plus special themed tours at 11am; check the website or call to see what's on. There’s a cool cafe and shop, too.
