Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is a combined museum, art gallery and state herbarium. TMAG has the broadest collection mandate of any single institution in Australia. It promotes interaction with, and understanding of, the cultural and natural world for present and future generations. It achieves this by collecting and conserving material evidence of Tasmania’s cultural heritage and biodiversity. The focus of collecting is on historical, scientific and artistic items. TMAG’s goal is to acquire works and objects to enhance the State collection.
The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery collects, preserves, researches, displays, interprets and safeguards the physical evidence of the natural and cultural heritage of Tasmania, together with relevant material from interstate and overseas.
