About the Planetarium and tickets

QVMAG Launceston Planetarium.png


The Planetarium opened in 1968, and its home since 2009 has been the Queen Victoria 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. 

Each Planetarium show is viewed from the comfort of former aircraft seats, and includes a live description of the night sky over Tasmania. An entry fee applies, and tickets need to be purchased from the QVMAG front counter at Inveresk no later than 10 minutes before the show. 

Planetarium tickets
  • Adult $8.00
  • Child $6.00
  • Family $22.00

Please note: a family ticket offers admission for two adults and two children, or one adult and three children. If more than two adults/three children are seeking entry under a Family ticket, another adult/child ticket will need to be purchased.



Please note that the Planetarium is closed Sundays, Mondays and Public Holidays (with the exception of Mondays that fall within School Holidays). Planetarium Shows are suitable only for children aged five and over unless otherwise noted (shows marked with*).
