Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
Opened by the Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings, the redevelopment had been seven years in the planning and construction.
It seems the Tasmanian public agrees that the thirty million spent on the project has been ‘well worth it.’ The redevelopment which includes twelve new exhibits, features Tasmanian timbers and Britton’s celery top pine was chosen for the eye-catching new entrance at the historic Watergate on Dunn Street.
Britton’s celery top pine is featured extensively in the updated courtyard onto which a new café opens. The brilliant use of celery top for the architecturally-designed seating and access ramps has drawn high praise from visitors to the Museum and Art gallery.
TMAG management believes the redevelopment will increase visitation to the already popular attraction by fifty per cent.
