WOW! So great to have something that is educational, interactive, indoors in the heat and not cost anything! My children learnt so much and raved about their experience at the Dinosaur Exhibition. It is places like this that we accidentally strolled past that make us want to come to Brisbane more. Well DONE!

There are some great things to see and learn at this museum. The setups and displays are world class and the interactive touch screens are great. The small exhibition called 'Inside'-on the life of childrens homes and institutions in Australia was eye opening and terribly sad. I even ate at the cafe which had some really good food. Overall a... More

most museums you can go to once and be content that you have seen everything you want to see. Displays rarely get changed over and moved around. NOT this one. Every couple of months i head down to see the latest exhibition. There are some interesting, sometimes quirky, some funny, artistic displays. The displays do get moved around and seems... More

Great day out for people wanting to see a little of the history and modern science put together. The place is very accessible and you can spend several hours wandering about - no problems. Cost is also highly affordable in comparison with many other tourism attractions in the state. Strongly recommended!

I took a group of 10 girls (aged 7-9) on a Sunday. They enjoyed learning about all the different exhibits and engaging with the interactive displays in the free areas so much that we decided to take them to the Deep Oceans Exhibit which they loved! They easily could have spent hours in there playing the games and digging in... More

While I'm not a museum person this is not the run of the mill one with changing displays. Make sure to visit the science centre on the first floor too!

Compared to others in world, this museum isn't much, but it's worth a visit. You'll only need a couple of hours and will only have to visit once a decade, if that, to feel like you've seen everything they have to offer. Personally I'd like to see more history from the local area, but I guess they are running short... More

We went specifically for this exhibition and were quite impressed. It was a weekend and the place understandably was packed full of children - it was interesting to see though that often it was the parents who were holding up the family outing by trying their hand at the interactive displays rather than the kids! Lots of good information for... More

Great opportunities for interaction in a variety of areas. I have been taking my children since they were born and they love it. The museum is changing it's exhibits now quite regularly so there is usually something new to see.We found the staff exceptional. Really helpful, knowledgable and happy to assist. Lots to do without paying a cent, though you... More
