Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) is a museum located in Hobart, Tasmania. The museum was established in 1843, by the Royal Society of Tasmania under the leadership of Sir John Franklin, the oldest Royal Society outside of England.

The Museum's collections primarily focus upon the history of Tasmania through every era.

There is a geological history of the island, protohistory display from the inter-glacial periods, a display about megafauna, native Tasmanian fauna, the history of Tasmania's indigenous population, the history of British settlement, the colonial period, Tasmania's past as a penal colony, and Tasmanian history in general.

The art gallery also contains a fine collection of Colonial and Contemporary Art, as well as a display on the history of money.
