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.

Cold wet miserable day, stumbled across this little gem. Run by volunteers, nearly didn't go in as a bawked at $10 entry fee. Glad I did venture in though, small but jam packed with interesting displays and information. Excellent little museum, worth the entry fee...More

Well laid out, reasonable entry fee. Allow a couple of hours to either read exhibit info or listen to video material.
