Our family went with 5,3 and 1 yo. Models great for kids to see. Amazing original paintings and equipment to see. Its quite small but good size for small kids. Can really see why Hobart has its beautiful boating culture. On going admission is $10...More

I'm fan of maritime museum. I was not desapointed in that one. Very intersting models and information. The model and explanation of the Hobart bridge broken in '70 was very intersting.

Once you get past the entry fee this was as expected a worthwhile exhibition though not in the same class as the one in Brisbane.

The museum gives a great insight to the maritime history of Hobart and Tasmania. The price is reasonable $10, for the amount of time you can actually spend in the museum. Worth a visit.

Lots of see, wonderful displays and Maritime artefacts. A great way to spend a couple of hours and learn something also.

Went to this museum as the larger Tasmanian museum doesn't open on Mondays in winter. Fascinating array of artifacts from Tasmanian maritime history. Well worth a visit to spend a couple of hours.
