Army Museum of Tasmania

Museum in Central Hobart & the Waterfront

The Anglesea Barracks were built adjacent to Battery Point in 1814. Still used by the army, this is the oldest military establishment in Australia. Inside is a volunteer-staffed museum, which runs 45-minute guided tours of the buildings and grounds on Tuesday.

The museum is full of interesting old uniforms, medals and weaponry, but the real attraction is the heritage architecture.
