“Spacious and entertaining!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 NEW

Spent the afternoon at the museum and found a little something for all ages. Although busy plenty of room to look at exhibitions without being interrupted or feeling you had to rush.

“Amazing Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 NEW

Absolutely brilliant, very central from CBD. Walking distant. I really enjoyed spending my time there. Love the architecture both interior and exterior. The building it self is a pieces of art. The bookshop next to the exit, you will be able to get some famous books by some popular artiest with autograph.

“The Best Little Museum in Brisbane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 NEW

The best thing about the Museum of Brisbane is that it focuses largely on the local area. For the young it can be a look at unknown times past; for the older visitor it can be a trip down memory lane. As exhibitions change reasonably regularly, you need to check the schedule so as not to miss any of them.

“My son and I had the best time exploring the musuem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

We enjoyed the museum immensely, my seven year old son wanted to go back everyday he enjoyed it that much. Interesting information and artefacts about Queensland, the world wars, dinosaurs, aboriginal culture and of course the exciting museum shop. Oh the cafe was great and reasonably priced also.

Thanks for leaving a review Fiona R, unfortuantely I think these kind words are for Queensland Museum. We're Musuem of Brisbane, which is in City Hall. We don't have dinosaurs, but we do offer free tours of City Hall and the Clock Tower, which are always popular with kids. We'd love to have you and your family visit next time. Thanks!
