  • A lot of good things in this museum with a good interactive area for kids and adults as well apparently. Space section was really well done with a lot of interesting information and has a good focus on Tasmanian scientific discoveries. Some really nice art of Tasmanian nature going back to 1863 in the upper section with a number of photographers having pieces. Well worth the visit and spent a good 2.5 hours exploring and would've been more if the planetarium was open!
  • The Museum itself was average but we really enjoyed the Planetarium. Two very enthusiastic staff members spent an interesting hour answering our questions about the night sky. Great film also about the formation of primordial Earth. Great place to take kids during school holidays!
