Pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of the exhibits. Well worth the visit but will allocate more time next visit. Impressed by the exhibition of local artist Franck Gohier.

My family and I enjoyed the experience of walking through the museum. Saw and experienced the effects of Cyclone Tracey and the devastation it caused in 1974. Great story about a crocodile that was captured and restored that terrorised the locals for many years. This...More

Very good and interesting collections, but currently reduced in size. Hopefully the renovations will be completed soon, to return extra material and a cafe to the mix (which it needs).
