Welcome to the Friends of TMAG

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery collects, houses and safeguards our natural and cultural heritage and provides an insight into other cultures.

The Friends of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery was founded back in 1982. We assist TMAG in whatever way we can. Each year we present a varied program of events to bring people through the doors. We also support TMAG’s curators and collections by donating funds to assist with purchases. 

The Friends of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is a member of the Australian Federation of Friends of Museums (AFFM) and the World Federation of Friends of Museums (WFFM).
