Current Exhibitions

We're renovating!

So, with two galleries smelling of fresh paint, we are presenting two exhibitions ‘Writing and the Sea’, an exhibition exploring a selection of objects and stories from the museum’s collection from the perspective of writing in all its myriad forms and 'Boat as Metaphor', an exhibiton of sculpture and drawings by Tasmanian artist David Hamilton inspired by the River Seine in the city of Paris that explore the human experience.

There is an entrance fee of $10.00, with accompanied children free of charge. 

The museum is open from 0900 to 1700 (9am to 5pm) seven days a week.

Redevelopment of our permanent exhibition continues.

Our public program of lunchtime talks remains suspended.
