Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery focuses on the history, culture and character of the city of Launceston.

Museum at Inveresk: The Inveresk site is home to the preserved railway workshops and permanent exhibition Tasmanian Connections which reveals a range of stories as told by the Museum’s social history and natural science collections in six striking installations. Visitors can see dinosaurs, death masks, planes soaring high above and artefacts from Australia’s oldest merchant shipwreck, the Sydney Cove. Location: 2 Invermay Road, Launceston.

Inveresk also features the Phenomena Factory, a free-entry interactive science centre providing hands-on education for kids of all ages, The Blacksmith Shop, Replay>>Sporting Life in Tasmania exhibition, Transforming the Island and QVMAG Planetarium.

Royal Park Gallery: The opening of Royal Park Gallery on 17 September 2011 as a dedicated art gallery has created a new vibrant cultural destination for our city and a unique opportunity to engage with contemporary and historical art and design. The refurbished galleries, featuring both long-term and temporary exhibitions, provide a destination in which to enjoy the richness and diversity of the QVMAG fine art and design collections that are a vibrant part of this city’s heritage and contemporary culture. Location: 2 Wellington Street, Launceston.

Planetarium: The Planetarium opened in 1968, and its home since 2009 has been the QVMAG Museum at Inveresk. The Planetarium operates a Zeiss ZKP3 star projector in conjunction with a fulldome digital system. Each year, thousands of people gaze up onto its famous dome to watch exciting feature presentations and to experience the thrill of feeling that they are out under the stars.
