We love the museum. It's free to enter and there is so much to see. Just a short stroll from Southbank parklands. So much to see and learn.

Queensland Museum continues to get better and better, from this years medieval showing to last years history of the underwear. The curators and staff do such a marvellous job and the volunteers are so friendly.

Whilst in Brisbane we experienced some drizzly weather and this was perfect. Our young boys were occupied and stimulated by so many things that caught their interest. Free kids activities filled the time nicely and had them leaving with their craft projects. Keep an eye out for exhibitions as they are always well done

Went there out of curiosity and found myself quite pleasantly surprised. It is a great place to go if you're interested in art and history. It also has a variety of other exhibits that are as equally interesting. Some of the exhibits are interactive which is a bonus if you're with young children. Other than that, it's a great place...

we went here 2 weeks ago and it was a nice place for some people who loves history and art. My partner was enjoyed the visit because she is a kinda geek but i am not so interested into this kind of stuff. Overall, it was a nice visit.

This interesting little museum in Brisbane is free to the public and due to that is relatively small, but does have some interesting exhibitions on display. It has an elaborate Australian section with much information about Aussie's wildlife and a special Leatherback Sea Turtle display, showcasing the life cycle of this sea turtle with a very detailed reefscape. Along with... More
