The Army Museum of Tasmania is closed from today until further notice. We will keep everybody up to date via Facebook and our Website. We are still contactable through our email or by calling our office during normal opening hours. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The Army Museum of Tasmania is located at Anglesea Barracks, in Davey Street, Hobart. The barracks is recognised as one of Australia’s most significant historical military precincts and its appearance today is much as it was when the first buildings were constructed in 1814.
The Museum is located in the Military Gaol which was built in 1847. This building is little changed from when it was first built even though over the years it has also been used as a Girls Reformatory, a married quarter, a store and offices.
Displays interpret the colonial period when the British Army occupied the site and the various conflicts Tasmanian service men and women have been involved in from 1899 to the present day.
