While we are redeveloping our Visitor Centre, the gift shop and retail spaces have moved to the Police Station (behind the Penitentiary) and The Asylum (adjacent to the Museum Cafe). The Police Station is open 10.00am – 4.00pm daily and The Asylum is open from 10.00am – 5.00pm daily offering a wide range of gifts and craft items. Drop in and select a unique reminder of your visit with help from our friendly staff.
Popular items include locally hand-made gifts, crafts and jewellery along with plenty of tasty Tasmanian treats such as fudge, sweets, preserves, tea and liqueurs. The shop also stocks a wide range of books about Tasmania and Port Arthur, including a fascinating range of publications on our history as well as local bush walks.
Also available are postcards, tea towels, mugs, toys and clothing along with many other souvenirs.
