Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery
Established in 1891, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) is the largest regional museum and art gallery in Australia and is owned and operated by the Launceston City Council.
The QVMAG is located on two sites: the Royal Park site (currently closed for renovation) and the Inveresk site, which was once the Launceston Railway Workshops.
the QVMAG enjoys an enviable reputation and national profile for its collections of Australian colonial art, contemporary craft and design, Tasmanian history and natural sciences. Special features include the interpretation of one of Tasmania's most intact nineteenth century industrial environments, the Launceston Railway Workshops. A recent addition to the QVMAG is the Phenomena Factory - an interactive science centre housed at the Inveresk site.
The QVMAG is open daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm (except Good Friday and Christmas Day) and entry is free! A theatre-style auditorium and other spaces are also available to hire for presentations and cocktail functions.
