The TMAGgots run quirky, unique & fun events that help us to experience the arts, history, culture, heritage and the sciences in new & interesting ways. We just do things differently and proudly declare ourselves TMAG's young @ heart "culture vultures".

Check us out & come to an event sometime ..


What the ...?

The TMAGgots are a small not-for-profit volunteer-run community organisation with the sole aim of connecting people with the arts, culture, history, heritage and science through the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and other places. If you like things a little bit different, a little bit quirky, then you'll love what we do!

We hold regular events throughout the year, usually in Hobart and it's immediate surrounds, which are based on exhibitions or happenings at the TMAG, and events or activities of appeal elsewhere. Join us for some hearty cultural gluttony...
