The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery opened a new offering for young visitors.
The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) is opening a major new offering for young visitors and their families, the gallery mapiya lumi | around here.
Developed for children aged 0-7 years, the gallery is TMAG’s largest long-term exhibition project since the 2013 Redevelopment of the museum. ‘mapiya lumi’ means ‘around here’ in palawa kani and reflects a focus in the exhibition on a sense of home and place that is unique to the islands that make up lutruwita/Tasmania.
Designed with the child’s perspective in mind, the gallery incorporates a dedicated space for little ones aged 0-3 as well as a range of areas for children aged 3-7 to explore.
Entry is free, however bookings are required.
There are five bookable sessions available each day during TMAG’s regular opening hours.
Session times are 10:15 am, 11:15 am, 12:15 pm, 1:15 pm and 2:15 pm.
