I have downloaded the tessellation tool for ArcGIS Desktop for making hexagon grids around a study area.

I only found a *.gpk file at https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=03388990d3274160afe240ac54763e57

Where do I find it as a toolbox (*.tbx)?

The GPK file is a Geoprocessing package.

There are instructions on how to unpack it to find any contained toolboxes at Using a geoprocessing package:

When you open a geoprocessing package, the contents of the package (tools, toolboxes, data, and associated files) are extracted to a folder in your user profile.
