The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) is Northern Tasmania's home of art, history, and natural science. The QVMAG collection shares stories of local Aboriginal cultures, colonial history, and modern diversity, alongside extensive history archives and natural science research. Located across two sites, you can experience the QVMAG collection through the 1890's heritage Art Gallery at Royal Park (2 Wellington Street, Launceston) and the Museum at Inveresk (2 Invermay Road, Invermay), set within 1870s-era industrial railway workshops. The Museum at Inveresk is home to natural sciences displays, transport and railway memorabilia, blacksmith workshops, and the iconic Launceston Planetarium. See dinosaurs, trains, animal species (including the Tasmanian thylacine), artefacts from Australia's oldest merchant shipwreck, and the Phenomena Factory; a free-entry interactive science centre providing hands-on education for kids of all ages. Over at the Art Gallery at Royal Park, you'll explore the history and culture of the Tasmanian Aboriginal people through the long-term exhibition First Tasmanians: our story, experience history collections such as the Guan Di Temple, and uncover galleries showcasing the QVMAG art collection; which bring the histories, identities and stories of Northern Tasmania into a fresh and contemporary context. Two sites with free entry and open daily. Please visit our website for further details.
