  • A great place to visit. Lots to learn about local wildlife and Tasmanian aboriginals. Have a Look at the last Tasmanian tiger. Findout about Antarctica and it's wildlife with interactive displays and info on past explorers. Cafe and gift shop have some lovely things. There is also an area for groups to gather outside. And they often have a kids day or activities throughout the school holidays.
  • 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!
