The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is located on the corner of Argyle St and Davey St opposite the Maritime Museum and inner harbour. The (TMAG) as it is abbreviated to, is a combined museum, art gallery and herbarium which houses the State Collection of Tasmania.
A quote from their website:
”TMAG aims to provide an environment that both stimulates and educates the general public; collects and conserves material evidence within the areas of humanities, including visual arts, history and anthropology, and the biological and physical sciences. TMAG also undertakes research on the collections within changing intellectual, social and environmental contexts; and interprets and presents its collections and research through diverse programs and publications which provide opportunity for public access and participation’. Basically the museum has a lot of interesting Tasmanian artifacts and has a lot of interactive features for all the family.
Opening hours: 10:00 am and 5:00 pm daily except Anzac Day, Good Friday and Christmas Day.
