The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery stands on the ancestral lands of the Stoney Creek nation, comprising the Tyerrenotepanner, Leterremairrener and Panninher clans. We acknowledge and pay respect to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which QVMAG now stands and waters it adjoins.
The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) is a major destination for art, history and natural sciences in Northern Tasmania.
Our collection has been in the making since 1842, and includes significant acquisitions and donations from across the world. History, Natural Sciences and Visual Arts and Design are our key collection areas, cared for and exhibited for the community of Northern Tasmania.
QVMAG spans across two locations:
We are continually working with the community and peers to build and better understand this extensive and diverse collection as well undertaking new research into both existing and new collections and research areas.
QVMAG is owned and operated by the City of Launceston with ongoing support from the Tasmanian Government.
QVMAG is open 363 days each year, offering a fun-filled, educational and intriguing day out. We look forward to your visit.
