Army Museum of Tasmania

Established in 1983, the Army Museum of Tasmania collects, preserves and exhibits the stories of Tasmanians that have served in the Australian Army.

The museum’s historical collections are housed within Anglesea Barracks, the oldest working barracks in Australia. Built in the 1840s, the barracks was originally a military prison.

Donations of memorabilia and historical artefacts are gratefully accepted in accordance with the museum’s collection policy.  

The museum relies heavily on the efforts of volunteers. Please contact the museum for further information.
