Maritime Museum of Tasmania Tours
Hobart’s heart lies on the sea, and as an island Tasmania’s history is inextricably bound to the water.
If you’d like to learn more about Tasmania’s maritime history, the Maritime Museum of Tasmania provides all the answers.
You’ll see models of the ships that docked at Sullivans Cove, hear the stories of the men who sailed in them, learn about Australia’s first explorers and see the navigational instruments they used.
The watercraft of Tasmania’s original inhabitants, the Aborigines, are also displayed, along with artifacts rescued from shipwrecks, photographs, paintings and whaling equipment.
The Maritime Museum of Tasmania is in the Carnegie Building, a block back from the harbor on Argyle Street in the city center.
