The museum is housed in Tasmania's oldest building and has been there since 1863. A major revamp is currently happening to make a larger area open to the public, as only a fraction of the museum's collection is able to be on display at any one time. This is expected to be completed by early 2013. Original features of the building will be retained but galleries will be updated and refreshed. There is an interactive 'Islands to Ice' exhibition as Tasmania has close connections to early exploration to Antarctica. The natural history gallery showcases Tasmania's flora and fauna.
There is a children's discovery centre, as well as cafe and shop. Cafe open 10am-4pm weekdays, 11am-3pm weekends.
General admission is free. Guided tours are led by volunteers.
Open Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm
Closed Monday, Good Friday, Christmas Day and Anzac Day.
