One of the largest museums in Australia, this place has a thorough and interesting collection of arts and artefacts relating to Tasmania, colonial history, and the natural sciences of the regions. There’s a zoology exhibit too. The best way to check out the museum is the Heritage trails, which leads you through 37 interpretation sites that collectively narrate the history of the site. The Phenomena Factory is an interactive science exhibit for kids. Kids will also enjoy the Launceston Planetarium. But the main exhibits here relate to the railways, and how they changed the face of Tasmania. And finally, there is an exhibit on WWI the experiences of the Tasmanian soldiers who fought in it. Check the museum website for current and upcoming events.
