To escape the heat we paid this free museum a visit. The exhibitions were modern, informative and very well presented. It was refreshing to be home from Vietnam where our Museums present scientific based information versus their prophaganda driven rubbish.

If you have children the museum is a must. So much see and learn without them even knowing that they are. All the staff we come in contact with were just so friendly and willing to help you with anything.

At our last day of a 3.5 weeks stay we visited this museum. We did see everything we met and didn't met. A great, free, museum for all ages. Very worth to spend a morning or afternoon!

A must do in Brisbane - there isn't much else to do! That said, the QLD Museum is excellent and free.

A lovely museum which I visit whenever I come to Brisbane. The museum and science centre are great for kids and the museum often as extra seasonal (usually paid) exhibitions which are always worth visiting. Today I saw the exhibition on the Large Hadron Collider, absolutely amazing and so educational for kids.

The overall offerings were great although a little disjointed and not really a flow. We unfortunately attended during school holidays and it was loud and disruptive.

Found on the South Bank of Brisbane, flanked by art galleries, this museum is really stand-out. Set across 3 floors it has everything a good natural history museum should: dinosaurs, display cases full of monstrous insects and tons of animals and birds from Queensland and beyond - there's even a giant squid! Lots of the exhibits are interactive, encouraging children... More

Nice museum with lots to entertain the kids. Mostly free with modern interactive layout. Spent a couple of hours with our young kids and would have stayed longer if we had time.
