The Queen Victoria Museum offers Tasmanian Social History and Natural Science collections spread across six installations which are suitable for family viewing. The range is large from dinosaurs to death masks and encompasses a regularly varying selection of artefacts and items.
The Phenomena Factory is their interactive, learn science through play centre. Hands on fun education suitable for almost all age groups, crawlers probably will not get much from it.
There is also a plentarium which offers regualr shows throughout the year.
