Traveling to Australia, this stop came to the capital of Tasmania-Hobart. Wandering around in the city center, came to this museum, it is located opposite the city hall, near the pier, there is a parking lot at the door, parking is very convenient, but there is a charge. The museum is free to visit. When you enter, there are some open-air art-shaped seats on the right, you can take a break, and the front left is the locker area. All guests who come to visit need to put their belongings in the locker Inside, you need to prepare a 2 Australian dollar coin, open any vacant cabinet, there is a small slot in the cabinet door, you can put coins, only coins that are exactly 2 yuan in size, and then pull out the key as soon as the cabinet door is closed. Well, when you need to advance items, plug in the key, and the door will be opened, and the coins will be automatically spit out to you. This museum has several sections, including a history and culture museum that introduces aboriginal people, a taxidermy museum, a fine collection museum, art gallery, coffee shop, rest hall, etc. I only visited the taxidermy museum due to time issues. Learn about the animals that are unique to Australia and even Tasmania. Of course, these are all specimens, such as the extinct thylacine, the Tasmanian tiger and the Tasmanian little devil. , Kangaroos, birds of various sizes, etc. The decoration of the taxidermy museum is very simple, or it is deliberately made into a primitive decoration, it feels like returning to primitive society. The lighting in the lounge is dim, but it is decorated in a British style. There are always clear instructions along the road. You can look at the signs to find your favorite pavilion.
A museum that is definitely worth a visit. Although it is not a large-scale museum, there are a lot of things in it. What's more, his collections are very carefully selected. I think it is a selected museum. .
It mainly displays materials related to Tasmanian indigenous culture that disappeared due to British colonization. ·The architectural style of the exhibition hall is full of characteristics. According to the architectural prototype of the colonial period, a collage-style architectural pattern of repeated additions is adopted.

A cool addition to everyone's obligatory visit to MONA (that's why you're in Hobart right?!). Unlike $25 MONA, this option is FREE hooray. Affectionately nicknamed T-MAG by locals, it was established in 1846 and is home to special and permanent exhibitions. Come here to find out everything about the extinct Tasmanian Tiger (or Thylacine) and Tasmania's history and people.
To understand the past of a city, it is correct to start from visiting the museum. What impressed me the most are the two contemporary photographs in pictures 4 and 5. The author is Geoff Parr, a local artist in Hobart. In his works, he reconstructs the history of Australian colonization and genocide with artistic techniques, examining the black history of this land. "Everything is reversed, especially the blacks and white." (Everything is reversed in the work, especially the black and white characters).
The Tasmanian Museum building and surrounding buildings are all a period, not many people visit, mostly local people, no charge, the environment is very quiet, suitable for quiet appreciation. The exhibits are very rich, from specimens of animals and plants to artworks, and colonial humanities.
