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 "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...

out for ...

So far this year we've had a divine Valentine's Day garden party at the historic Narryna in Battery Point, a Harmony Week event at TMAG, had a private tour of the Bay Villas in New Town and quizzed ourself silly at our Unique Annual Quiz.

Have you checked out the Tempest Exhibition at TMAG yet? We had great fun exploring the galleries over Dark Mofo but there's plenty of time to check out the exhibition, open until November.

With Dark Mofo on we've juggled some dates but are still working on a return of the very popular Into the Vaults #2 event, which with give us the exclusive opportunity the visit the TMAG collection and research facility at Rosny Park. 

We're also working on an exclusive members-only event before our next public event for Science Week.

Here's a reminder of some of the great things we did last year, to give you an idea of the sorts of event we host ..

  • explored six of the private historic boatsheds at Cornelian Bay;
  • been guided through the Patrick Hall exhibition by the artist himself;
  • sketched the wild and kooky of the TMAG collection;
  • seen what one artist can do with 43,000 pegs and had a behind-the-scenes tour of Moonah Arts Centre (MAC);
  • learned to detect the BS* with Glow Girl and Scibabe (*bad science!);
  • hosted a great year end gig, with live music and a French wedding cake on our 10th birthday.
