The museum houses permanent and changing exhibitions so you probably need to arrive with a plan in mind as to what you'd like to see as it can be overwhelming. Despite the main attraction at the time we visited (you cant go wrong with dinosaurs!) we found the Discovery Centre had our children captivated. It was more hands on and... More

I absolutely LOVE the Queensland Museum! I visit at least once every fortnight without fail. It's a really family friendly place, with a zone designed for kids downstairs, not to be confused with the Science Centre which you need to buy tickets for (highly recommend!) which is also downstairs. The main part of the museum is free, with the main... More

Took my family to see the Dinosaur expo and left feeling a little bit disappointed. Although seeing my son so excited and amazed made the experience worth it.

Visited with Family while in Brisbane. The main museum is free to the public but the special exhibits and the science centre have a fee attached. We visited the Dinosaur exhibit, science centre and the main museum. Good access although parking is $16 a day paid on entry to the facility. Science centre a clone of the others around Australia...

One thing a lot of people who reviewed this museum forgot to do, was to judge it through the eyes of their children!! This is who the museum is targeted at. Can I day my kids loved all the interactiveness. The amount of questions my daughter was asking based on what she was seeing was enlightening!! This introduces science to... More

The museum is in one of the huge, rather ugly Stalinist-Russian-block buildings that sit 100m back and line up right along the SouthBank river edge. Not exactly enticing architecture, but it is nice having the museum, art gallery, gallery of modern art all in the one place. The museum was bustling with school kids, who were marvelling at the many... More

This museum will keep the whole family entertained for hours and entry is free. The displays do change from time to time and they sometimes have visiting exhibitions from around the world. One time they had an Egyptian display with mummies and artifacts. It is not a huge museum but the building is light and airy and very pleasant to... More

A great range of exhibits always on display for kids and adults. Interactive and informative. There are always special exhibits that cost more but are generally worth it. Remember weekdays often have school excursions which depending on the behaviour of students can be a good or terrible experience. They have a cafe with OK coffee and food but it is... More

Went to see the Dinosaur exhibition from reading reviews. It was terrific! Having taught primary school for very many years I thought I knew a lot and there us lots more to learn! Seeing life sized models was enlightening. Watching kids and their parents interacting with the displays was such fun- learning is such a gift!
