We went recently with some friends (3rd time since we arrived in Brisbane in mid 2012). Among the normal expositions, there was a very special one with authentic vintage wardrobe used by the greatest actors of the Hollywood golden age in some of the greatest films ever. My wife was astonished. The access is normally free, and of course you... More

A hotchpotch. "If it's old, put it in the museum". Not quite sure what you could do to improve it. Conference with overseas museum curators perhaps on what to do" You leave wondering what it has to do with Brisbane. Good for 30 mins visit if it's raining and nothing else to do

The Queensland Museum is a natural history and ethnography museum located in the cultural centre on Brisbane's South Bank.

Informative and entertaining insight into Australia's creatures. Really interesting section about the war. Features about women's wear. All in all very interesting. I didn't do the paid sections of the museum - the free bits are fab!

Hi FairyMagic16, thanks for leaving a review however you have us confused with our friends over at Queensland Museum at South Bank. They have the dinosaurs ;-). We're on Level 3 of City Hall and tell the unique stories of Brisbane. Kids generally love taking a free tour of the City Hall Clock Tower, make sure you ask about a... More

I came here to the 'Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion ' exhibit. A ticket for this costs $21.50 and you can leave and re-enter as often as you like on the day you visit. It was put together very well, you were able to see all the exhibits clearly and there was lots of information about each piece.... More

The exhibits we could see were great, but it was very crowded and tickets were oversold. Though I would go to other events held at night

Being very near to the Brisbane GOMA and the Art Gallery this museum is a must. It is free and it can save you in case of a shower. It saved me too!
