Plan your visit

Immerse yourself in a day of fun and exploration in the heart of Hobart!

Located on Hobart's waterfront, opposite Constitution Dock, Maritime Museum Tasmania is open every day of the year (except Christmas Day).

We are wheelchair accessible, and only a short walk from the city centre.

At the Museum, you will find stories of exploration, shipbuilding, and our relationship to the sea.

Come and see shipwreck remains, explore a life-size naval ship’s cabin, and read stories of the men and women who left their mark on Tasmanian waters.

Find Us

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

We are two blocks from Hobart's CBD, a pleasant five minute stroll from the city's central mall, or a 10 minute walk from Salamanca place. 

Parking is available along the waterfront in metered spots, or you can park in the multi-story Argyle Street carpark, a short walk from the museum. 

If travelling on public transport, we are conveniently located only a block away from the Metro City Centre Bus terminal, where buses from all over greater Hobart finish their trip.
