  • Interesting museum, lots of unique Launceston exhibits, seen some really cool exhibitions, and who doesn't love the planetarium? Definitely recommend.
  • Lots of stuff for kids to look at and play with and be inspired by. Cafe is alright too, and there is a converted train carriage to eat in.
  • Brilliant place for all ages very kid friendly good place to eat at good prices.bit if a catch in one section.THE dinosaur exhibit is always free but of cause its school holidays so until the end of February its a fee to get in there.
  • You know your been around when things in the museum you have used or owned
  • Good way to kill some time & see some interesting exhibits. My favorite was the one on the oldest beer. They are remaking it with the yeast they found. Unfortunately I won't be here long enough to try it.
