Groups and tours

Maritime Museum Tasmania welcomes group visits. You can manage your own group visit, or we can provide a guide to help interpret the displays. 

Our knowledgeable volunteer guides will help you unearth the stories of Tasmania’s maritime past and present, bringing to life the stories behind the many fascinating objects housed around the Museum and about our spectacular vessels.

A range of tours are on offer to suit all ages, interests and amount of time you have free to explore. However, tours are subject to availability so make sure to check what's available when you arrive at the Museum so you don’t miss out.

Groups requiring a guided tour of the Museum should ideally be limited to about 20 people due to space constraints within the galleries, but larger groups can be accommodated by splitting the group up.

The Museum is wheelchair accessible, and coach parking is available on Argyle Street.
