We had quite a few hours wandering through the Maritime Museum looking at the extensive exhibition of old maritime artifacts, and reading all the information. We would recommend this for anyone. We went there on the CityCat which was very convenient.

Well laid out an maintained smallish maritime museum. Good range of exhibits, ranging from warships to private yachts. Worth and hour or two But . . . don't bother with the audio tour - this is a complete farce. The first audio box we tried would only broadcast one word in three, the second one id not work at all...

See how the men of the navy lived, eat,slept in hammocks,and worked on this ex Navy minesweeper, lots to do and see you won't believe the way the men lived.

Had to give it a go as we were there - some nice views of the city lit up at night but I wouldn't go out of my way to do it

We were at the Queensland Maritime Museum a few weeks back as part of our time in Brisbane, it is a wonderful museum with lots of documents, pictures and artifacts that you can peruse as well info about hundreds of shipwrecks that happened (and possibly are still happening) along the Great Barrier Reef. The ships they have to tour in... More

The HMS Diamantina comes to life with the help of the superb audio guide. The ship is well restored and gives a great image on what life onboard could look like. Friendly staff as well!

A very comprehensive maritime coverage especially relating to Queensland. Top marks to all involved in the establishment of the precinct and to those who continue the vision. Radio commentary very informative as were the volunteers who were both informed and informative. All involved showed a warranted pride in the museum.

We came across the maritime museum by accident. I'm glad we did, as it was very enjoyable. If the kids are happy, then I'm happy. We enjoyed exploring the moored frigate(?) in the dry dock and exploring the site. If you are staying in central Brisbane, then a walk through the botanic gardens, combined with a walk across the pedestrian... More
