If you are Tasmanian or under 18, admission is free (you'll still need to pick up a ticket at the museum). For everyone else, tickets are $28 for adults and $25 concession.

Admission prices may change without notice. ID will be requested upon entry.

Museum entry includes access to Pharos, which you enter from level B3.

You’ll need to buy extra tickets to see certain artworks. Event Horizon by James Turrell will have a $10 entry fee from Boxing Day 2018. Use your O device to queue for this artwork on the day of your visit, and pay staff at the artwork entrance. No cash, sorry.

Tickets to Turrell’s Unseen Seen and Weight of Darkness are $25, and include timed entry to both artworks. 18+ only and limited to two people per session. Pre-book tickets here through our website or you’ll probably miss out.

Avoid the queues.
