We just visited the free bits which were excellently & stylishly laid out. There was a big queue for the dinosaur exhibition for which there was a charge. There is a well appointed cafe, but sadly the fish in the fish & chips was more or less non existent! The shop is also worth a visit, but obviously aimed at... More

While we were in Brisbane to see the Grandchildren, we took them to the Queensland Museum to see the Dinosaur Exhibit. The timing was during the Easter break so was very busy but worth the time. The exhibits fascinated our 3 and 1 year old. The space it was set in could have been larger but was amazing to see.

So accessible, a hive of activity. So many different and varied displays, and no entry fee. Definitely recommend, allow a few hours to see it all.

I took my god brother who was visiting from Sydney and he loved it! We saw all of the free exhibits which included dinosaur remains found in Queensland. There is the very popular Discovery Centre where children can interact with the exhibits.

Queensland used to be known as the Smart State... but you wouldn't know it from the museum, offering very little intellectual stimulation whatsoever for those beyond preschool age. It's been simplified throughout the years and now it just seems like a play centre full of shiny things and bright colours rather than being remotely educational. For instance, the Resource Centre,... More

After visiting GOMA and attractions near by, I sat at one of the benches to rest my feet. I heard loud roaring of animals and became curious where it was coming from. I took the elevator and entered the Museum and Science Center. The staff were busy changing their exhibits so I tried to visit displays located away from them.... More
