The Tasmanian State Library in Murray Street in Hobart houses the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts.  The Allport collection was originally the life's work of Henry Allport who bequeathed the entire contents of his home to the people of Tasmania in 1965. The Allport family first settled in Tasmania in 1831.

 The collection includes some very fine examples of British and australian furniture, art and books.
