ABOUT

COMA is Tasmania's medical and healthcare history collection and archive located in Hobart

We are a not-for-profit incorporated small museum.

For the past five years we have been located at the Jane Franklin Hall in South Hobart. 

However, over 2022 COMA Tasmania will be moving Semaphore Cottage, Castray Esplanade, Battery Point.

COMA has never been more relevant. The pandemic has led to unprecedented interest in health and science, and a need for science-based information.

We are working to develop a well-known, specialist museum that helps our community to explore questions about human health, Tasmanian society and science. 

COMA will be responsive to public conversations about health, and sustainable through ticketed visitors, volunteer workers for visitor services and public programs, and fundraising. 

To support our move and a vision for a new museum, please donate.
