Queen Victoria Museum at Inveresk

Featuring the Launceston Planetarium!

About

Northern Tasmania’s home to Tasmanian history, heritage and natural sciences.

The Queen Victoria Museum should be on the top of your places to go in Launceston. It is Australia’s largest regional museum and is situated on two key sites: the museum at Inveresk and the art gallery at Royal Park.

Queen Victoria Museum is located in the cultural precinct of Inveresk in a 1870s era railway workshop, with the University of Tasmania’s Visual and Performing Arts centre right next-door.

It hosts a number of exhibition spaces for permanent and touring shows. The Inveresk site is home to the preserved railway workshops and a permanent exhibition called Tasmanian Connections, revealing a range of stories from the Museum’s social history and natural science collections. Visitors can see dinosaurs, death masks, planes soaring high above and artefacts from Australia’s oldest merchant shipwreck, the Sydney Cove.

If you travelling with kids the museum has a range of hands-on education and interactive science exhibits at the Phenomena Factory – for kids of all ages! There are also immersive exhibits located in The Blacksmith ShopTransforming the Island and at the Planterium.
