  • The museum itself is not only to see the Knesset. There are lots of fun, but also pretty and the contents inside. Holidays here in the neighborhood to see the fireworks.

  • Close enough to the GOMA that you can hit both up in the same day. Lots to see and do there. Worth visiting.
  • Always great things for the kids to do. Some staff are rude and weve had bad experience with sexualised displays that the kids are exposed to. Science Centre was fantastic
  • Very cool, went to an after dark, with food and drinks. The downstairs area has lots of cool "experiments" we had a blast!
  • Interesting facts in Museum. But not happy with the cost of tickets for Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous. Wasted our money.
  • We're very lucky to have a nice museum in Brisbane. While not as an impressive building as the old museum located near The RNA Showgrounds this is located in a better place than the old museum. I love the large whale hanging from the ceiling.
