New conditions apply due to COVID-19
At the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), we are committed to ensuring the wellbeing and safety of our visitors and staff as we reopen with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
We have created an experience that prioritises your safety and enjoyment by introducing physical distancing and extra hygiene measures, comprehensive regular cleaning, and visitor number limits in galleries and on the site as a whole.
All visitors, including educational groups, are required to book in advance to ensure their well being and safety. For educational groups, please follow the links below. For a general visit please book here. TMAG remains free admission and there are no booking fees.
Please do not plan to visit if:
- you’re unwell, have experienced cold or flu symptoms, fever or recent loss of smell or taste
- had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
- been instructed to quarantine and your 14 days has not yet finished
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back and connecting with our visitors in person again.
This year TMAG’s education staff will be hard at work developing the exciting new long term interactive Children’s Exhibition, opening in 2021, so we are offering a focused, highlights learning program as Live Virtual Tours for Terms 3 and 4. Information on programs for Term 4 will be available later in Term 3. These guided programs are delivered by TMAG's education specialists virtually. Programs are designed to deliver targeted learning outcomes for primary school aged students.
Bookings two weeks in advance are essential for all guided programs. Please note that exhibition and program dates may change without notice. Alternative dates and times may need to be considered.
To ensure all schools have the opportunity to access TMAG’s guided programs, TMAG asks schools to limit their bookings to no more than two guided programs per school, per week.
