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

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
