About Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) in Launceston is Australia's largest regional gallery. The QVMAG enjoys a national profile for its collections of Australian colonial art, decorative arts and design, Tasmanian history, and natural sciences. It is located on two sites, Royal Park and Inveresk. The Royal Park site was purpose-built in 1891 and is one of Australia's oldest museum buildings. The Inveresk site, opened in 2001, was once the Launceston Railway Workshops. The original structure has been incorporated into a striking contemporary architectural design that features world-class galleries and exhibition spaces. Inveresk also features the Phenomena Factory, Australia's newest and most exciting free-entry interactive science centre, providing hands-on, minds-on, curiosity-on science education for kids of all ages. Inveresk also now has the upgraded Launceston Planetarium and Space Gallery, relocated from its original Royal Park site.
