Run by volunteers this museum was a good find, 2 floors of displays and stories of Tasmanian seafaring. Quite enjoyed the museum, friendly staff, book shop and things for kids

How we have managed to visit Hobart regularly for decades and not know about this incredible museum is beyond me! When in Hobart, do yourself a favour and visit this great place. I'm so glad we have finally found this museum. The Maritime Museum of Tasmania has been carefully thought out and the displays both upstairs and downstairs are nothing less than impressive. I think my favourite part of the museum was the Captain's quarter's in the corner upstairs - complete with vintage television and other furnishings and fittings of the era. The staff are particularly friendly and knowledgeable. They are more than happy to provide further information about the maritime history of Tasmania and beyond. Helping make sense and learning more about the Tasman Bridge disaster, for example, was just one of the ways they helped us navigate and fully appreciate this museum. You could easily spend half a day here. Don't miss the chance to visit when you are in Hobart. I also like the way in which you can be in the museum yet look out the window and see the world of modern maritime playing out in Constitution Dock. A very special place that should probably be visited and appreciated more than it currently is. Thanks so much for an exceptional and enjoyable visit!
Good to walk around a maritime history in Tasmania. Not free admission, but good to time spent with a family if you are interested in Tasmania history. Clean, tidy, and well organized. Recommended!
