Great free attraction for anyone, close to the city - walk, train, bus, or city cat. Lots of interesting exhibits.

Fantastic free attraction. Well set out displays. You can spend a short time here or a very long time. Up to you. Next to the Art Gallery and across the road from Southbank. It would be easy to make a good family day outing without having to spend a lot of money.

We visited the Deep Ocean display. Admission price was $12 each and no discount for child or concession. The Deep Ocean display was boring and we looked at all the displays and we were done in 30 minutes. There was some interesting pieces but overall it was boring. What a disappointment. No living animals, all dead! Wish I spent my... More

Years ago I would have rated the Museum 10 out of 10 - Sadly they've changed (upgraded!?!?) Level 3 - and also taken away the Transport Museum (moved it to Toowoomba) .. it's still a great day out but after making the trip to Brisbane we were a little disappointed with the changes.

It's an average first world museum, beautifully built, but I was honestly not impressed with the collection. I expected more as an adult. On the other hand, if you have kids there's plenty to do there! They will LOVE it! An afternoon filled with new information!!!

LOVED the dinosaurs.....and so did my son!! Great interactive experience for kids of all ages. Most floors were free except for the Science centre on Level 1 (I think) but Level 0, 2, 3 and 4 were good too. Located at the end of Southbank, just over the bridge from the CBD.

We recently visited to see the Afghanistan exhibition and it was truly amazing. The place was packed and we had left it to the last few days, but they managed the numbers well and the exhibition was incredible. Loved the audio devices you could hire to enhance the experience, they were very well priced. Will keep an eye out and... More

I visited there twice last year, once with a friends mother and the second time on a date. Both time I had great fun visiting the museum. It caters well to a broad spectrum of people too
