Auto museum driving to North Bank

Launceston’s iconic automobile museum is set to drive to an exciting new location. Plans have been unveiled for the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania to move from the Cimitiere Street site, which has been its home for the past two decades. It is relocating to a prime position opposite the Silos Hotel in the new North Bank precinct. Museum board member, Harry Williscroft told The Examiner: “With all the money that the council and government are spending on the [North Bank] park and bridge across the Seaport… I think we are going to be in absolutely the right spot, I cannot think of a better spot to move to.” The museum is moving to make way for the planned UTAS campus at Inveresk. The National Automobile Museum of Tasmania, which has a collection made up of private vehicles, attracts about 24,000 visitors each year.
