Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

Galleries, Museums and Collections

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.
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.
TMAG is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm from 1 April until 24 December, then daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm from 26 December to 31 March, and on public holiday Mondays year-round. Closed Christmas Day, Good Friday and Anzac Day.
