  • We found the display of the first inhabitants to be informative and interesting. Items such as water carrying devices and explanations about how they were constructed made it very real.

  • Good place to visit. It is free. Amazing display of animals and dinosaurs. Lots of information to be had. Upstairs has an amazing array of photos from around Tasmania and under Tasmanian waters. The science part for kids is a massive let down. I would have honestly thought that during its time closed for covid they would have upgraded or fixed the activities. Instead there is still plenty out of order. The tram cafe was closed on both occasions we went. Art display across from that had broken art work etc. Outside has standard science stuff but once again some were out of order or lacked the equipment needed to do them. It's free so please donate.
  • Small but very well-designed local museum; all areas easily accessible with a pram. Especially enjoyed the dinosaurs and the photography exhibit on the second floor. Gift shop has a large selection of locally-made items. Will be coming back again.
