The Museum is a tribute to those who created this brilliant and authentic replica of Mawson's Huts, making it something much more intimate and involving than a typically "dry" museum experience. Her you can get a great feel for what the living conditions were like...More

Walking through a replica of the actual hut the explorers endured in brings this museum to a different level. Although not very large, I'd still recommend giving yourself plenty of time to walk around and read all about who these people were and what it...More

Truely fascinating. So much information that is really unknown to most people. Famous names like Amundson and Shackleton read widely but Mawson almost an unsung explorer of Antarctica. A great light on how men lived in such a hostile invironment.

Expensive but worth a visit in conjunction with the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Probably not worth seeing on its own - a lot of the context that makes this meaningful is given in the TMAG displays.
