We stumbled upon this museum, purely because we parked in the carpark underneath. And we were very glad we did!! The museum was full of interesting artefacts and displays; we initially planned on quickly perusing the ground floor, but due the quality of the displays, we spent a full 2.5 hrs enjoying all they had to offer. A real "must... More

The Queensland Museum is both educational and entertaining. The exhibits are well-presented and relevant - from dinosaurs to special exhibitions. Take home a souvenir from the Museum Shop and/or enjoy something to eat and drink to keep you going.

The Queensland museum in Brisbane should be on your list to visit of you have the time. Entry is free, although you do have to pay for entry to the science centre and special exhibitions. At the moment, until 5th October there is “Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous” showing and well worth the visit. The rest of the... More

First we had to pay $15 dollars just to park in the museum. Then we had to pay $30 to see the Dinosaur exhibit and after we left the Dinosaur exhibit that wasn't really worth $30 they wanted us to pay another $30 dollars to see the science exhibit. We had morning tea at the museum cafe which was as... More

Average for a family outing. Not much changes and pretty small. The kids enjoy it though (3 & 7) and are happy to go there every few months. But don't go on rainy days, parking is quite often full.

This is a great place to start if you are visiting from outside of Australia. The exhibits were updated and there was a variety of topics covered, all relating to Australia. I really enjoyed the natural history area, and the Aborigine exhibit, which may have been temporary (?). Plan to spend about an hour, maybe a little more, in order... More

Everytime we go to Brisbane the kids request (nag!)for us to visit here.....again & again. The main parts are free with any special exhibits requiring a ticket. We did the dinosaur exhibit which cost us (a family of 4 but includes up to a family of 6 in the family ticket) $45. Girls loved it. To add in the science... More
