The former Tasmanian Public Library, built with funds from philanthropist Andew Carnegie, now houses the Carnegie Gallery. This is a public gallery run by Hobart City Council. There are frequent exhibitions and it is often the venue for national touring events such as the Doug Moran Portrait Prize or the Blake Prize for religious art. The architectural beauty of the original building has been well preserved, with a sweeping staircase leading upstairs to the gallery. Programs are well advertised and the visitor will never feel crowded in the spacious room, no matter how popular the exhibition.
