It's been a while since I went, but there were no reviews so I thought I'd contribute.
The museum is right next to Reef HQ and the IMAX theatre, so if you have time left after those 2, come to the museum. It takes about an hour or 2 to look through everything, maybe longer with children, or if you don't know too much about Australian wildlife already.

There is a section which changes exhibit every month, and this exhibit is usually advertised outside on posters, and are quite good. The standard exhibits which are always there are not excellent, but still have good info. There is a lot of info on marine environment and wildlife, as well as some local history and events.

If you're limited for time, then Reef HQ is much more value for money, but if you have the time, then the museum is still worth a trip.
