  • Don't overdo it apart from the people who built Museum composed of old ships and maritime exhibition, but much more are interested in this field, is good enough. Said is worth $ 16 at rock-bottom pricing as the Museum of Brisbane and the question remains.

  • What a great Museum loved it. It was very cool that you can walk around and have a play with all the buttons and gadgets on board the Australian naval ship. Great opportunity for photos. The staff were friendly and helpful.
  • Amazing amount of work has been put in to the displays. Gold star to all the hard working volunteers. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Held my birthday party here. It was great for kids and parents. The waterfront area was absolutely beautiful, with the huge gums for shade and a wonderful breeze. Organising the booking was very easy and excellent value. The museum shop has some moves ice blocks and soft drinks, that where nice to have on the riverfront on a hot summer day. The all volunteer staff are great, and eager to help and chat. I know I'll be back.
  • Fascinating museum, well worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare. Wandering around the destroyer was revelation to me as an ex soldier. Lots of interesting exhibits.
  • Apparently I "pocket reviewed" the museum. No intention to give it one star. We enjoyed the museum a great deal and found it quite interesting.
