The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) houses collections in the fields of botany, geology, zoology, visual arts and crafts, history, indigenous cultures and applied science. TMAG is an integrated institution, concerned with a diverse range of natural and cultural heritage, with particular emphasis on Tasmania.

The TMAG site encompasses a significant and diverse group of heritage buildings on the one site in Tasmania.

The museum's traditional function, and still the major part of its operation today, is to acquire, conserve, manage, research and exhibit items of cultural or heritage value to the community. The majority of income is provided by an annual budget allocation from the State Government, supplemented by a small financial contribution from the Hobart City Council and the fundraising activities of the Art Foundation of Tasmania and the Friends of the TMAG. Significant corporate support has enabled a travelling exhibition program to be maintained.

TMAG has also benefited from more than 75 volunteer guides and curatorial assistants.
