Published on 29 April 2019


The Burnie City Council welcomes today’s funding announcement by Tasmanian Senator Steve Martin towards the Burnie Cultural Precinct.

This Burnie Cultural Precinct Project is a response to community demand for a more vibrant and connected cultural facility.

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “The Project aims to bring together the Burnie Regional Museum and the Burnie Regional Art Gallery into a contemporary facility that inspires a love of arts and cultural heritage through innovative, educational and participatory experiences.

“The merger of the two facilities is a key component of the Gallery and Museum Strategic Plan which aims to create a world class precinct, providing a leading visitor experience for the broader community and tourists to Tasmania.

“The goal is to improve access, increase engagement, build partnerships and facilitate education.

“There is overwhelming community support to amalgamate the Museum and Art Gallery, and this funding will allow for a physical link to be established between the two facilities.”
