The Maritime Museum of Tasmania can be found on Hobart’s historic waterfront, opposite Constitution Dock, in the Carnegie Building at 16 Argyle Street.

The museum is wheelchair accessible and in easy walking distance of most city centre accommodation, Salamanca Place and Battery Point.  We are just a minute or two’s walk from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Tourist and Visitor Information Centre, the Metro city centre bus terminal and Hobart’s main shopping precinct.

The museum has a gift shop specialising in nautically themed gifts and a book shop with a good selection of books of maritime and Tasmanian interest.

Opening Hours

The museum is open every day (EXCEPT Christmas Day) from 9am until 5pm.

We recommend allowing at least forty-five minutes for your visit but you can stay all day.
