I am a local resident to Cairns and I was fascinated by the historical items on display particularly "Cairns during the World War 2 Years" , lots of maps and photos and memorabilia. The Cairns City Council needs to invest more funds into this Museum and at least fix the roof of the building which leaks like a sieve in the wet season. I think a lot more can be done to preserve the many items on display and archived. A change of display/theme from time to time would be good for returning visitors. The museum has a lot of potential and its in the heart of Cairns. Worth a visit for a very small charge.
