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

The museum does a pretty good job at celebrating and explaining lots of things about Queensland, especially its natural history. To someone from Sydney, it all seems a bit too parochial, but then again it is not called the Queensland Museum for nothing. Like all good natural-history museums it makes a concerted and I think successful effort to engage with... More

The free part was very good. The Aboriginal exhibit was well done and informative, especially for folks not familiar with Australian history. The dinosaur and fossil exhibit was well done and interesting. Some of the animal exhibits were old style stuffed animals in a glass case which needs to be updated with more information although lots of kids were walking... More

Quite disappointing. We only had an hour to spend so saw two exhibitions one of which I am not entirely certain of it's purpose; I know it was about dinosaurs but the material didn't provide a clear story and I was left wondering whether it was about the task of extracting dinosaurs, dinosaurs found in Qld or the size of...

The museum is unimpressive with very small displays. It does not live up to most city museums. Not worth a trip out unless you are in the area.

The exhibition was actually quite good but I was surprised that the museum was so small. I was particularly looking to find information regarding a member of my family, perhaps where he lived and worked but found nothing. That was a bit disappointing.

This exhibition was interesting although we felt a little disappointed in that it was mostly techno displays as opposed to specimens.

I read a couple of reviews here before I went and I was a bit hesitant - unnecessarily. This exhibition is excellent with a lot of information on the creatures and daily life of the deep ocean. It was fascinating, educational and suitable for all ages. I read everything and it took just over an hour without rushing. A great... More

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
