The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) is a museum located in Launceston, Tasmania. Established in 1891, the Queen Victoria has a strong reputation for its excellent collection which houses a fine exhibition of Colonial Art, contemporary craft and design, Tasmanian history and natural sciences, specifically a zoology collection. There is also a special exhibition of a full Chinese temple that was used by 19th century Chinese tin-miners, a working Planetarium, and displays related to Launcestons industrial environments and railway workshops.

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art gallery is located on two sites, one at Royal Park (currently closed for renovations), and the other at Inveresk, the site of the old railway workshops and features Choose Cafe. The QVMAG is the largest museum in Australia not located in a capital city.fact|date=June 2008
