Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum

Mawson's Huts Replica Museum
Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum

Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum also known as “The  Gateway to Antarctica”, was opened on Monday, December 2, 2013 which was the 102nd anniversary of the departure from Hobart of the Australasian Antarctic expedition 1911-14 which Douglas Mawson led.

This is a replica of the historic huts in Cape Denison – Antarctica – constructed in 1911 by the men of the Australian Antarctic Expedition, led by Dr. Douglas Mawson. Constructed by heritage architects and builders, the replica was only made possible by a federal government grant and the generosity of many Tasmanian businesses and individuals who donated time, goods and goodwill. As a part of the Mawson’s Huts Foundation, all profits are toward the conservation of the historic huts.
