This is a wonderful museum with a broad range of fascinating exhibits. We particularly loved the fossils, especially the Australian dinosaurs and megafauna. We also visited the Large Hadron Collider exhibition but found it very disappointing in that the explanations throughout the exhibition were aimed at those with a sound knowledge of physics. Someone with only a vague notion of... More

When we visited the museum, the Hadron Collider was the special exhibit. I thought the presentation was well done, my teenaged son, not so much. The initial video they make you watch sort of threw things off. Instead of explaining and showing, they used three different points of view to get us excited ... for? Ok. One would have to... More

I normally am not a history or education type of guy, but I do like some science, having an interest with the Large Hadron Collider, when I drive around Brisbane and see the signs, I knew I had to visit it. I came to the museum without any planning or reservations, paid the $15 admission fee, and experienced it. Introduction... More

It has been several years since my last visit, but it seemed to me that there was less on display. Not a lot for young teens to engage in. Probably better for primary school aged children

Prams, prams and more prams..... why take your children here if they are in prams? Stupid idea unless you can control them. The free areas are of little interest and there is nothing that you have not seen before..... even the kids! I was so underwhelmed and I can not recommend this place. Unless you have children then by all... More

We walked across the Victoria Bridge to the museum and took the City Hopper ferry home (Dock #3). We truly enjoyed the museum. It was well curated - showing the animals of the area. They also had a dinosaur exhibit. You could get some great pics - so take your camera. It is free unless you want to go to... More

Children of all ages and adults will enjoy coming here. It is free and there is plenty to look at. We spent a good two hours there and all of the kids had fun. Take some food and drinks as the cafe is expensive.

The Queensland Museum (not to be consuded with Museum of Brisbane in the Brisbane CBD) is well located in South Bank right adjacent to the busway and Queensland Performing Arts Centre and its an easy one to tick off when in the area. You may even be surprised and end up staying longer than you expected like I did. I... More

I'm originally from Brisbane, but moved interstate about a year ago. The museum was never a frequent thing but every few years, I really enjoy a visit there. The bulk of it is free entry. There's a really great shop for souvenirs and gifts, all the animal and insect displays are quite fantastic and there are extra exhibitions that change... More
