We spent a very impressive two hours here. Our children didn't want to leave. The café was a bit of a let down though, our buzzer didn't work so we waited 20 minutes for two hot chocolates.

The recent Wild State was an enjoyable little stop off while in south bank. This museum is small and contained with lovely exhibits worthy of an hours stop off to enjoy and soak up the lovely aircon!

This facility has lots of space however the exhibits consisted of one small exhibition of fossils and some dinosaurs on ground floor, stuffed fish/lizards/snakes etc on 2nd floor, and exhibit of spiders, butterflies, rats, snakes, etc etc on first floor. Very disappointing will not come back again.

This is a really great museum, with local exhibits. I spent a good couple of hours in here & really enjoyed it. Most of it is free, there's a charge for the science center part, there's a nice little cafe & a gift shop too. Worth a visit!

An interesting museum with lots of Australian animal exhibits and artifacts.Very comfortable to visit on a hot day. The museum shop sells lots of fantastic stuff and the cafe is a nice place to relax.

The Queensland museum is a top notch museum. The displays are very vivid, well kept, interesting and remarkably well laid out. The parasite exhibit showed and educated us about the numerous things out there that can have a devastating effect on animals and humans. Older kids would like it I am sure but I think the wee ones would be... More

We enjoyed the Dinosaur interactive area, try to enjoy all the free attractions because they are just as interesting at the paid attractions and set ups

We haven't been here since our last Brisbane visit years ago. We are always impressed. Exhibitions change regularly, are always brilliant in presentation and fascinating. This time Three VC recipients and Extinct Animals in Qld. We will go back for Parasites and Wild Queensland. A great gift shop and good cafe - always a great place to revisit. We were... More
