The Centre for Learning and Discovery (CLD) is the life-long learning unit of the TMAG. A plethora of public programs provides a rich environment for students, teachers, professionals and the general public of all ages. One of our most innovative programs running at the moment is AccessArt, a three year program focussed on contemporary art and art education. Our educators embody the belief that visual art is relevant to all disciplines, providing rich resources through which to consider new ideas and rethink the familiar. Students will be challenged to go beneath the surface of what they see, engaging and playing with images and ideas and discovering new meanings. All our guided exhibition tours and workshops emphasise contemporary culture and encourage critical engagement with art, as well as creative expression.

Learning is at the heart of the museum. Our vision is to make Tasmania’s natural and cultural heritage available and relevant to as wide an audience as possible, and aid the learner’s journey in understanding this heritage. This includes contextualising the learning experience geographically and historically as well as enabling learners to reflect on their role in societal development.


CLD engages the broad community of Tasmania and its visitors in a range of learning experiences and resources that deepen their appreciation of our natural and cultural heritage. We do this through close interaction with real objects in the state collection using a diverse variety of interpretive methods.
