The Channel Museum tells the stories, yarns and legends of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel area of Southern Tasmania. Just 20 kilometres south of Hobart, the Channel Museum is a must see on your travels “around Hobart” and has excellent visitor ratings on Trip Advisor and Google.
They cater for locals, individual tourists and tour groups, cruise ship groups, school groups and special interest groups. There is ample on-site parking and easy access for elderly and disabled visitors.
The centre comprises a modern, purpose-built museum and library that explores all aspects of the history and heritage of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel area. They also have an outstanding collection of cameras and photographic equipment. You can hear authentic stories about the quirky details of the area from a volunteer whose family has been in “the Channel” for generations.
Their gallery showcases the work of local artists and organisations, in-house special occasion displays and travelling exhibitions. They change the gallery display monthly and the artwork is often for sale.
The cafe serves delicious snacks, meals, and drinks made on site from local ingredients where possible. It serves great coffee. The shop also sells art and craft made by locals.
