TMAG has created a range of events and activities to suit all ages to help celebrate The Remarkable Tasmanian Devil, so come and meet the devil you know, and the devil you don’t, this summer!
School Holiday Program

Join TMAG’s learning team to create large Tasmanian devil sculptures from organic and recycled materials. These collaborative daily workshops include hands-on 3D making for 5-12 year olds, as well as an informative and playful devil-themed space for early learners. Plus, you can see your devil sculpture displayed in the Watergate Courtyard from 22 to 28 January! Free event, no bookings required.
Devil Sunday Sessions
Sunday 4, Sunday 11 and Sunday 18 February 2018
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A series of late afternoon short talks with live music in TMAG’s summery Watergate Courtyard.

Emceed by science communicator Mark Horstman, the sessions will also feature live music in partnership with Music Tasmania. See the flyer for full line-ups of speakers and musicians.
