“Good place to visit”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Museum has lot of information about all things about Australia. I went there during June 2013. There were displays of various precious stones and even a few pieces from a meteorite. There are other things of interest flora and fauna of Australia.

“An old-fashioned museum”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a very traditionally styled museum with a dinosaur room, a minerals room, a mammals room with a range of stuffed animals, a butterfly room etc. Nothing innovative here but not bad for a rainy day and right on the blue cat bus line. The Muse cafe did look really good and offered a hearty soup for winter and the grounds were lovely with lots of lovely grassy places to sit.

“Was ok :)”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Spent an hour or so in here looking at he exhibits. Informative! Amazing life size models and skeletons. All sorts of creatures from around the globe.
Meteors outside the building were very impressive!
Worth a visit but not in the same league as some British museums bar far!

“So interesting!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Could easily spend an entire day at this museum! So many interesting exhibits, some are even interactive. Great for the whole family. Has a very large variety. Stairs and lifts. Everything is wheelchair accessible. The staff are very knowledgeable and are more than happy to help and explain things.
