About Beaker St:
During National Science Week in Hobart, BeakerStreet@TMAG is a pop-up science bar, a parlour of curiosities, an inn for inquiring minds. Come along to quench your thirst…for knowledge. You will encounter live music, zoological oddities, photographic inspiration, amiable wandering scientists, seriously good food and drink, and such a bounty of distractions that you may forget to go home. Entry at TMAG is free, but tickets must be purchased for some events.
