  • We enjoyed the Museum and Art Gallery. Nice exhibits and interesting Tasmanian history. I especially liked the "Skin" exhibit at the Art Gallery.

  • Absolutely loved it! It was not what I expected, and so caught me off guard. Free entry great exhibits for which adults and kids can enjoy and interact with. If you got time to visit only one museum in Launceston, then this should be a top 3 of choices to pick from. You won't be disappointed.
  • The museum is a fantastic experience. My only complaint is the planetarium showed a documentary about Charles Darwin, but I wanted to find out more about the stars! Otherwise a great place to visit with or without kids.
