Temporary museum closure advice

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is temporarily closed to the public to allow for final building works and preparations before our  reopening in early 2013.

This closure is allowing staff and contractors to put the final touches on TMAG’s $30 million Stage One Redevelopment.

“We need to take this time to install new facilities and exhibitions for visitors to enjoy, while also ensuring we take the best care of our heritage buildings and the treasures in our collection,” TMAG Director Bill Bleathman said.

“Stage One of the Redevelopment will provide 12 brand new exhibitions, a variety of education programs for all ages, and improved facilities and access to Australia’s most significant collection of Colonial buildings.

“Your redeveloped museum will be able to host a greater range of exciting exhibitions and provide engaging visitor experiences, while also enabling the State Collection to be better cared for and more accessible than ever before.”

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the museum, this time through the historic Watergate on Dunn Place, when we reopen in early 2013.”
