How would you like to support TMAG?

Your tax-deductible donation, no matter how large or small, can help us share TMAG’s treasures through exhibitions, research and education programs that benefit the community of all ages. 

$100 will help conserve the wedding dress famously worn by Kylie Minogue in her role as Charlene in Neighbours. This dress, and others, are part of TMAG’s textiles collection which needs ongoing care to help the fabrics endure.

- $250 will support education services that allow TMAG to update and share our Black Box, Ice Box and iRemember cases with communities across Tasmania.

- $500 will help our scientists research the pockets of Tasmania that we know harbour unidentified flora and fauna. With your help we can collect and identify new species that will build on our iconic State Collection of natural knowledge, such as Cameronia a new genus of lichen recently discovered by TMAG scientists in alpine Tasmania.

 - $1000 will help exhibit TMAG’s collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts tell the stories of Tasmanian life. From John Glover‘s colonial masterpieces, to the celebrated contemporary works of Philip Wolfhagen, your support will allow us to continue to present our critically-acclaimed exhibitions.
