The Brisbane Museum has got to be one of the most fun museums and I love finding something new every time I visit this wonderful place of discovery. This trip I found the marine exhibition and the selection of shells is amazing. Do yourself a favour and the family if they are with you and visit. I bet you find... More

I went and saw the Dinosaur Discovery Exhibit and I was blown away. It was fantastic. Downloading the App that was available was a wonderful idea and I spent ages looking at the life-like creatures as I went through the exhibit. And I must say I enjoyed watching the families enjoy themselves as much as I watched the Dinosaurs!!!

It is a free museum except for special exhibits like the Dinosaur exhibition. I enjoyed the Aboriginal exhibition featuring local Aboriginal people's pics, and bios. Some of the people in the exhibit were very famous people.

This is a local favourite, especially for children. It is surrounded by the Art Gallery, State Library and Performing Arts Centre all of which overlook the Brisbane River. Southbank Parklands is across the road and is easily accessed before of after a museum visit. The Museum has a wide range of exhibits and inside is a Science Centre which continues... More

This is a great place to go and learn about a wide range of Queensland's history. It also occasionally shows an exhibit on other areas, such as the Dinosaur Exhibit that is currently running.

Been there today, we liked it especially the dinasours part on the 3rd floor. The thing we didn't like is the noise of the school kids

We had some time to kill before a Segway tour with Kangaroo Segway tour (check them out too) so we thought we'd have a look at what's inside. Luckily we had the dinosaur exhibition going on. It was really great. Lots to look at, loads of information, moving dinosaurs and also more to do like the coast, aboriginals and other... More

No mach for the Australian Museum in Sydney but still a good museum. Saw the temporary dinosaur exhibit and thought it was fun but not worth the $15 entry fee (I had concession though so only $13.50). General admission is free which is nice. The layout doesn't seem very intuitive ecept on level 2. Other levels were a little confusing.... More

My daughter and i loved the science centre here & it's well worth a visit if you have kids in tow. Great for all ages - there were children as young as 2 enjoying the interactions. Quite informative about the body, weather, physics and much more. Some great illusions explained. Well worth a visit.

Want to see the plastic dinosaurs (and some real bones)? The Queensland Museum does a good job on these, but go further to see other exhibits. As with all museums there are some that are permanent, but the visiting or special event displays are always worth seeing. There's usually a fee for the visiting exhibits, but it's worth paying.
