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!

We visited the Sciencentre and actually preferred the general exhibits which are free of charge and interesting and varied enough for a wander. It's not huge - just a little bit of everything - natural and human history and the dinosaur and bug sections always go down a treat with kids. Compared to Melbourne, it's tiny and we were done...

My son and I spent an hour strolling around the museum on a hot day. They had some interesting exhibitions from the dinosaur historical exhibit to a Freewheeling cycling exhibit (on loan I think) and the Queensland and coastal displays. We also saw a lot of dead animal species in display cabinets. The museum is nicely laid out and doesn't... More

Have often visited this museum when in Brisbane. This time, during the Christmas holidays, it was great to see the place buzzing with families. We escaped the kids and saw the Undressed exhibit which was great. The staff are courteous and helpful, the exhibits change regularly, you can pay for a few hours in the Science Centre and the State... More

Usually packed during school holidays, kids will enjoy this place. There are dinosaur skeletons, a bit of stuff on the ANZACs, some on turtles and stingrays and such, a good display of taxidermied snakes, lizards, birds, insects, small mammals, etc, and a few small enclosures of stick insects and tree snakes. Upstairs has more adult stuff - exhibits on state... More

A great free tourist trip out in Brisbane. While it is not the largest of museums some of the exhibits are pretty cool (who can say no to dinosaur bones). There is a special exhibit for kids that all the families seemed to love. Make sure to check out the adjacent Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art for... More
