I must state first up that I know this Museum very well having helped move it and set it up 17 years ago. But I always ty and visit it, because they have such a great story to tell of the early days of Hobart and Tasmania with such a lot of interesting Maritime artefacts to display. Do yourself a... 更多
The permanent exhibition on Tasmania's maritime history provides excellent insights and contributes to an understanding of the island, its culture and people. The artefacts are well chosen and the explanations are clear, concise and yet detailed. Topics covered are, among others, Indigenous Tasmania, various European explorers, convicts and settlers, lighthouses, the whaling industry, Antarctic research and war ships associated with... 更多

Surprisingly, you can spend a good couple of hours in... 更多
Good models and informative displays, not really too big so doesn't take more than a couple of hours to have a good look around and take it in - although you could spend longer if you wished.
I found the collection to be very limited and somewhat boring. There was not enough about local maritime history other than an extensive collection about WWI and WWII - if you are not interested in these you will find the entry price of 10AUD a bit too steep..
The maritime history of Tasmania is a vital part of that state's history - even prior to the arrival of Europeans.The Tasmanian Maritime Museum has been given a pride of place close to the old wharf areas of Hobart and opposite the Tasmanian Museum. The displays are relevant and interesting. The number of exhibits makes for a good but fairly... 更多
