The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery is located at a number of sites in the northern city of Launceston, and has many items of railway interest.

Parts of the former Inveresk Railyards have been converted to house the museum. The former carpenters shop now features a large railway exhibit, and some of the other workshop buildings, such as the blacksmiths shop and weighbridge, are open for inspection

Details for the museum may be found at their official web site
