Well worth the visit and well located near the docks. The displays and information are logically set out and interesting. Local volunteers only too willing to explain details if needed.

I am a local who delights in discovering more knowledge about Hobart’s history. The Maritime Museum offers well curated displays with knowledgeable and friendly staff. I was lucky enough to have a Scottish gentleman as my guide. Well worth visiting.

Not a huge museum, but well worth a visit if you love all things maritime, like me. When I visited there was a display upstairs of 'fashion' clothing made from rubbish washed up or dumped on beaches. A novel way of highlighting a huge problem.

Interesting for the nautically inclined. Could use some more salt water and blasphemy. It is great they have preserved a lot of Hobart-specific objects.
