  • Nice place for kids or visitors! convenient to park and so many Tasmania artifacts to see in this museum. All my tour members like to go there. Plus, it is free.
  • Interesting museum, lots of unique Launceston exhibits, seen some really cool exhibitions, and who doesn't love the planetarium? Definitely recommend, especially since you can see most of the museum for free. There's also the Phenomena Factory, which has some cool hands-on science for the kids.
  • Top three places to visit if you're in Launceston. Science, fun, planetarium, history and war, all under one roof. Entry is free except for the planetarium. There is a small cafe and toilets 🚻, including disabled ♿ toilets. Enough paid 🅿 is available including disabled ♿ parking and disabled ♿ access to the building. There are very active parking inspector in the area so do not take any risk. There is also a tram ride available on the site.
  • Cool spot. Give yourself a min 2 hours to see it. Great section on the Tassie tiger!
  • A great free museum! You should donate as you walk in though because it’s a very special place. The natural history section is really cool!
