Yes its small but packed with a huge amount of tasmanian maritime information. The volunteers were great and the entry price of $8 was reasonable. A well worth donation to keep these types of museums open. We were very fortunate to have the Tasmanian Art...More

This is a small Maritime Museum. The clerk was really nice. The biggest info in this place was the Tasman Bridge disaster. On January 5, 1975, a boat named Lake Llawara collided with the bridge. 12 people died, 7 from the boat and 5 from...More
