Queen Victoria Art Gallery

Launceston's premier cultural destination

About

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery is the cultural hub of Launceston.

QVMAG is Australia’s largest regional museum and is situated on two key sites: the QVMAG Museum at Inveresk and QVMAG Art Gallery at Royal Park.

QVMAG’s extensive fine art and decorative arts collections can be found at a dedicated art gallery at Royal Park on the cusp of Launceston’s city centre.

Formerly a colonial gallery, the recent reinterpretation of the QVMAG’s collection at Royal Park reflects our histories, identities and stories in a fresh and contemporary context.

Welcoming back familiar favourites, Australian icons and hidden gems from the QVMAG stores, as well as major commissions by leading Australian contemporary artists, this exhibition explores the many facets of our communities and our origins in Northern Tasmania.

Focussing on local Aboriginal cultures, colonial history and modern diversity, the Royal Park permanent display encourages us to contemplate the ever-changing cultural landscape and our sense of belonging within it.
