Tasmanian Museum Art Gallery Courtyard

Tasmanian Museum Art Gallery Courtyard

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is of national significance as one of
the oldest museums and art galleries in Australia, and as the primary repository of Tasmanian natural and cultural material collections. The individual buildings on site are significant in their own right. The site contains the earliest surviving European structures in Tasmania and the most intact pre 1850s Bond Store structure in Australia. The buildings themselves are artefacts, and are as much an important part of the TMAG collection as the contents of the exhibits within them.
The Stage 1 Redevelopment of The Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery is a subtle but dramatic addition to the highly distinctive and significant heritage fabric of TMAG. The Redevelopment project involved considered integration of new contemporary and conservation works, which was done to best practice and in accordance with Burra Charter principles.

The focus for the Redevelopment was to work within this unique existing heritage fabric to provide public access to all parts of the site and to discover and reveal new opportunities within this built fabric, including areas which were previously unavailable for public access due to the configuration and fragile nature of the buildings.
