Took the kids (2 and 6) to the dinosaur exhibition and Sciencentre which they loved so much they didn't want to leave. Even the free exhibits are fantastic and fascinated the kids. Highly recommended!

It was fantastic to see so much actual mediaeval material in Brisbane. Going on the last day was perhaps not the best choice.

Museums in general are just fantastic - informative, free & appropriate for everyone. The Queensland museum is no exception, being a foreigner it has a practical use for me. Very enjoyable day out.

My first visit to the museum was for the Medieval night event. We bought tickets for the event and enjoyed seminars, medieval music, beverages, and toured the museum at our leisure without the noise of small children or large crowds. I loved the museum so much I wanted to visit a second time when a new exhibition arrived. I visited... More

If you have boys, in the 6 to 9 year age group they will love the museum exhibitions and scienceworks. The museum is free, special exhibitions may have an entry fee and scienceworks also has an entry fee. Well worth the trip!

We visited the museum to have a look and while it was very good and the displays were informative, it seemed to lack something. Perhaps more displays, or even displays that aren't often seen in your average Queensland museum. Bu otherwise it was a great visit!

If you have a genuine curiosity about the world, then this museum is filled with facts and things to learn about this life we live in. So much history, a lot of cool exhibits that are mostly free, and pretty interactive things too. Plenty of new discoveries to be made. Loved walking around here - and they're positioned quite well.... More

It doesn't matter how many times you return to the museum there will always be something new to see or that unusual exhibit that you didn't notice last time you visited. It's a great place to wander and reflect on the history of generations.
