What travelers say:

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.
