COVID-19 information

TMAG main entrance

At the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), we are committed to ensuring the well-being and safety of our visitors and staff as we operate with COVID-19 safety measures in place.

We have created an experience that prioritises your safety and enjoyment by incorporating physical distancing and extra hygiene measures, comprehensive regular cleaning, and visitor number limits in galleries and on the site as a whole. All visitors are required to check in via the Check in TAS app when visiting the site.

For everyone’s safety, our staff, volunteers and contractors are required to be vaccinated and wear face masks. Visitors are also required to wear face masks while on site, see below for more information.

We look forward to welcoming you to the museum soon.
