Considering the university I went to was nearby I would often visit the museum on my spare time. There's always an interesting exhibit, I, myself paid tickets to see the mummy exhibit awhile ago and it was worth it. If you don't want to pay for the special exhibits for the month you are free to wander around and marvel... More

I often go to the museum if I find I have a few hours to spare - never disappointing - always find something new & come out a bit more knowledgeable. My 8 y/o boy love the place! No entry fee - but often has $$ displays as well.

Loved our experience at the museum! One suggestion is more toilets - especially when there are so many school groups visiting! Other than that, brilliant day.

It is a lovely museum full of interesting surprises. We noticed the dinosaur exhibits particularly attracted children. The museum is conveniently located very close and in easy walking distance to the art galleries and so it is possible to visit a number of attractions the same day.

We visited the free exhibits and also paid to see the Science Centre. Our boys aged 8 and 9 loved the dinosaur, war and marine water exhibit. The free exhibits are only small but are very well done. We absolutely loved the Science Centre including the body movement, science and special spy exhibit. Well worth the entrance fee.

With a permanent display. Wonder through 3 levels. On display are dinosaurs, animals and the history of Brisbane. One of the best attack actions in Brisbane.

Me and my friend went to the museum expecting to pay around $15+ but to our suprise it was free. But you do you have to pay for the science bit downstairs which we didnt bother. definitely worth checking out, 3 floors of exhibitions. Really interesting and loads to see, kids and adults will both enjoy!
