“QMMA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Found a fantastic place for both adults and children alike right in the heart of Brisbane. Children can play and even touch things which you must admit is unusual for any museum. Our children loved it and we will return.

“Great Value for families”

Great way to spend a morning and for $28 for family ticket with knowledgable and friendly staff. Kids loved touring the Diamentina and playing with the big guns. Adults learned heaps too.

“Favourite with the grandchildren”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

For my grandchildren, no visit to Brisbane is complete without returning to the Maritime Museum. They love the displays in the main building as well as the variety of boats in the outdoor area - especially the grey warship in the dry dock. There are all kinds of maritime tales and interesting displays. The volunteer attendants are friendly and the entrance fee is very good value. Easy to get to - at the southern end of the Goodwill pedestrian bridge from the city or by ferry or car.

“Fantastic museum, great location, excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

The staff here are mostly volunteers and are knowledgeable and exceptionally friendly. The entrance fee is inexpensive - $18 for a family - and represents excellent value. They have a number of ships and displays which are great but the highlight is the WWII frigate where it is possible to enter most compartments. There are many displays throughout the ship regarding naval life. Allow at least half a day and combine it with a strool on the Southbank and through the Botanical Gardens. (If you go to the gardens also visit the Old Government House - well worth the visit just for the woodwork).
