Exhibition: The Remarkable Tasmanian Devil

Date: December 8, 2017 - May 6, 2018
Time: Museum hours


Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
Dunn Place, Hobart, Tasmania, 7000


An exciting new exhibition at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), providing visitors with a fresh perspective on one of Tasmania’s unique animals. The Remarkable Tasmanian Devil is all about the devil you know, but more importantly, the devil you don’t.

The Remarkable Tasmanian Devil explores a range of perspectives on the devil, from little-known historical tales to stories from pioneering scientific researchers. Visitors will be able to learn more about devil behaviour and explore cutting-edge science through a range of interactive experiences, including a simulation of what it’s like to be a young naturalist on the trail of the devil in a special in-gallery night-time experience, created with younger patrons in mind.

It is hoped that the exhibition will alter perceptions about this extraordinary Tasmanian animal and that visitors will leave with not only a better understanding of the devil’s history and biology, but also energised to make sure the devil doesn’t meet the same fate as its fellow marsupial carnivore, the thylacine.

Accompanying the exhibition is an extensive public program of events, talks and educational programming beginning in December 2017 and continuing throughout the summer into 2018.
