  • Modern and beautiful museum. Enjoyed the artefacts of dinasours, parasite exhibition and interesting local animals.

  • Honestly one of the best places in brisbane. If you need to have fun for a day the science centre has everything.
  • Great place for kids to learn about dinosaurs and the world of science. It is a small museum though and only takes around 1-2 hours to complete. Still, they do the vest they can with the small building they have!
  • Certainly not of an international standard and not much to see but what is there is well-presented and informative. The lost creatures exhibition was good and the parasites exhibit was fascinating (although museum staff should check the text on some of the exhibits that refers to parasites moving further north due to global warming...).
  • Close enough to the GOMA that you can hit both up in the same day. Lots to see and do there. Worth visiting.
  • Not huge but well worth visiting. Saw a special exhibition on parasites (more interesting than it sounds) and Australian dinosaurs (very good). The giant squid was fascinating.
