Classic displays with a lot of hands on. Not world class but some fascinating exhibits and insight into indigenous peoples. Some live snake and insect displays were a bonus.

I took my little guy to the museum and he loved it. His favourite displays were the interactive ones, like lush a button to get a story or roar. The stuffed displays are very lifelike.

The museum is located along the South Bank and very easy to walk to. There are four (technically five) floors to this museum. Floors 2-4 are free and require no admission. Floors 0 & 1 (Science Centre) are for school children and have an entrance fee of AUD$14.50. We did not go into the pay section so I cannot comment... More

Dropped in, in July, and checked out the Dinosaur display as well as the rest of the displays. Lovely, peaceful time once again. Handy to Southbank too, which is where I went after here and checked out the French activities. Buses just outside too.

The museum is nice to go to family friendly but not really kid friendly. Nice exhibitions but not much for children to touch. The exhibits are food for the mind and some are even touching to the heart. I enjoyed that there were many exhibits and they each floor had somewhat of a common theme. Worth going, just don't take...

We took our 2 year old grandson to see the dinosaur exhibition and he loved it. He was able to touch some of the models and get an idea of how big they are.

While there are paid exhibits there is always lots on offer for free. Great for all the family. I've always found the staff very friendly and helpful.

Entrance was free. It was very educational and there was a good variety in the exhibits but my favorites were the dinosaur skeletons and the gigantic squid. This was the first time I saw such an exhibit and it made my visit very special.
