Well laid out exhibitions on the history and wildlife of Queensland. Also good temporary exhibitions. The Anzac exhibition was on when I visited and this was fascinating and very moving. There can also be additional charges or some exhibitions (currently Deep Oceans) which I felt was reaonably priced, definitly would have got more out of that with a couple of... More

Our visit to the museum was a fun day out. We purchased tickets to the Deep Oceans as we have been to the science centre a few times. Firstly I opted to drive into the city, as parking at the museum is $15 all day. We really enjoyed the regular exhibitions, dinosaurs are my daughters favorite topic. The deep oceans... More

It has been years since we last visited this museum, the last time being with small children, what we saw was a very busy museum with loads of young families. We had come to view the current photographic exhibition; a collection of WW1 photographs discover in recent years in a barn in rural France, in most cases the last photo... More

Visited the Qld Museum on our weekend stay and visited the Deep Ocean exhibition. Was very interesting learning about creatures that live in the deepest part of the ocean. Also visited some of the other displays there as well which are well worth a look.

After standing in line for an hour with 2 children then paying $12 each no concession, it was nothing like I expected. I expected more animals and things to look at I guess? Having small children I found there to be a lot of reading! Really nothing that shouldn't have just been a part of the museum already. Seriously families... More

Plenty to do for free at the museum every time I go I find something new and interesting. Next time will do the science centre when I have more time.

I was hoping to learn more about the history of Queensland when visiting this museum. While it does have some exhibits on this subject and also an exhibit on the indigenous history of Queensland it was spread over a few locations and not all in a chronological order. They had some special exhibitions on as well which seemed to draw... More
