The redevelopment has transformed TMAG into a truly world-class facility - (The then Premier of Tasmania, Lara Giddings)
The project involved the creation of a new public entry off Dunn Place, a new foyer and increased exhibition space including the opening of new galleries in the heritage buildings. TMAG is the second oldest museum in Australia and it’s collection mandate is the most diverse of any in Australia.
The major challenge of the project was lifting the roof of the central court to allow this area to become a circulation system and exhibition centre. The restoration of the Bond Store included refurbishment of the timber structure.
