  • TMAG was worth a visit if you're in the city and have time to spare. We spent about an hour going through each open exhibit and the fact it is free entry, was time well spent for us.

  • Highly recommended! Weekdays got no fees(for kids and arranged tours you might have to purchase tickets). Many sections to explore. Staff are friendly and helpful with heaps of knowledge. Gift shop got several lovely cards, books and small souvenirs. Overall a Hobart must visit.
  • The best place to go and spend time with a family during weekend and school holiday. A lot of things to see and indirectly learn from various art and historical works in this well maintained museum. Short walking distance from the Pier and downtown in Hobart. Definitely recommended!
