This is a one of a number of small museums that are tucked away at UQ. There is one at the Ancient History/archaeology faculty. This one features Australian and pacific cultural displays and items. Worthwhile to have look at and visit. I feel that it...More

The Anthropology Museum at the University of Queensland is a small but decent museum. We checked it out quickly while were in the area recently, meeting a friend there before heading to lunch. It has free entry so that is always a plus, the whole...More

I visited here during the week. For a free exhibit, it is certainly decent but wouldn't go out of my way to visit. If you're on campus for whatever reason and have a spare 15-30 minutes to kill - consider a visit. The exhibit has...More

Visited Queensland University on day of an Aboriginal Welcome and exhibition. Had no previous knowledge of the University or its facilities as invited by a friend. Was impressed with the Anthropology museum which was focused on the aboriginal experience. It was unpretentious and well laid...More

We loved the museum: great exhibits, friendly staff. They even brought us chairs so we could watch a very interesting video in comfort.

Thanks so much for your review. It is such a beautiful exhibition and I'm glad you enjoyed the videos.

I loved the exhibition. Staff is friendly. They seem very eager to get more visitors. There was nobody there when my friend and I visited. It probably has something to with lack of awareness. Because the exhibition itself is really worth a visit.

I have visited the Anthropology over the years. The exhibitions change regularly, but the best part is the staff. They are so helpful and friendly. Well worth a look in any time you are in Brisbane with time to spare.

The University of Queensland's Anthropology Museum is interesting enough if you are arou d the campus and have a bit of spare time. It has the usual ethnographical fare of masks, spears, drums and other objects from other cultures, especially Asia and the Pacific. It...More
