We thought we would have a quick look, this place is incredible! 2 HOURS later we left. There is so much to look at, whether you want a trip down memory lane or need an item, or add to your collection this place has it all. A must see place.

If you haven't been here then go! It's unbelievable - full of treasures & collectables. Don't expect to walk away empty handed. Antiques. Retro. Oriental collectables - from floor to roof - simply fantastic!

Had time to spare before the Spirit of Tasmania, and wandered into this free attraction. It is a 3-storey shop but I'm not sure who buys most of the items. I find the atmosphere to be more of a gallery/ museum. Did not stay long as we had a toddler with us, and we were highly concerned that he might... More

I love calling in to Antique Emporium as there is always something to look at! I have even found hard to find items at reasonable prices.

Despite wandering around this place wondering what on earth I was doing there, I find myself returning every time I visit Devonport It's a complete hotchpotch of eclectic bric a brac with seemingly endless nooks and crannies of treasures, ephemera and old tat. Obviously run by someone with a good sense of humour as lots to smile at My 7... More

Wide range of antiques to suit a variety of interests. Mostly small items rather than furniture. Prices seemed reasonable.

Not what I would call an antique store, majority of items under 30 years old. Interesting enough for a quick look but I probably wouldn't return.
