There’s plenty of history to soak up on a visit to Hobart, Australia’s second-oldest settlement. Get a lesson in history with a visit to Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), established in 1843 by the Royal Society of Tasmania. You’ll see archaeological and colonial relics, Aboriginal artifacts, old photographs, ephemera and fine examples of colonial decorative arts.
The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is on Macquarie Street behind Sullivan’s Cove in the heart of Hobart. Entrance is free, but donations are accepted.
