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!

They pack a lot into a small space! Many exhibitions are free. I really like the taxidermied native animals and insects - very interesting little collection for visitors.

Easy to get to by public transport, no fee to just wander around whilst some exhibitions have a fee which are advertised. Something not to be missed whilst in Brisbane

This was the first time I had visited the museum and I must say i was very impressed. Lots of different things to see and well set out. All the displays were informative as were the staff. Would certainly recommend a visit to anyone.

We were particularly interested in the exhibits on Life in Children's Homes and Institutions and Aboriginal Cultures. There is also an exhibit that gives a good overview of Queensland. The museum was big enough to give a thorough picture of Queensland life and culture to an outsider, but small enough to see in a couple of hours.

We decided to go to the "Deep Ocean" exhibition. It was hands on, well set out, brilliant for families. We were pleased that as we bought the Mega tickets, we also had entry to the Sciencenter too. I was really happy to note that normal entry to the museum is free (something to remember for next time). Also parking was... More

Every time I visit the museum there is something new to see. I love the animal section, could spend hours in there! Great free place to take the kids or the grown ups too!

Unlike the recently visited Australian Museum, Sydney, this museum has a very modern feel. The exhibits , including some live creatures are shown very well in large glass vertical display cabinets. It's a very family friendly place with a vibrant atmosphere - not all hushed and smelling like old bones. Close to the Wheel and a quick walk from the... More
