Family learning is at the heart of the museum visit experience and the exhibitions throughout the museum and art gallery have been created to offer inspiration to children and adults alike. In addition to formal education programs for school students, TMAG offers a dedicated program for families, with a particular focus on engaging visitors in early learning programs.
A range of hands-on programs and resources, events and exhibits allow families and children to explore the museum and art galleries at their own pace and in a way that best suits their group.
TMAG has recently developed a Kids in Museums Manifesto that outlines our commitment to ensuring visitors have a family friendly experience. It can be downloaded here. The manifesto was developed with input from the newly formed TMAG Children’s Reference Panel, as well as advice from the Commissioner for Children, Tasmania, and the Children and Young People’s Advisory Council.
