  • Great for kids. Lots to see and do. They have each child a back pack or tool belt with lots of fun things to take around the museum like magnifying glass and binoculars. Kids felt very special! Ask at...  more »

  • This is a lovely museum. If you'd like to check out some of the local history, this is the place. Not as famous or as big as the MONA, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Best of all, if y...  more »

  • Awesome interactive exhibitions. My favourite was an exhibition which tested your senses. You had to try and find 5 hidden drawers (one for each sense) which contained things that test your senses; and there were so many cool things in the jars! Very interactive and fun. They also had a kids colouring section. Definitely recommend visiting!
  • Nice gallery. It's free so I'd recommend going because history is always fun. The downside and the reason I took away 1 star is also because its free though, since it's evident that the museum struggles to encompass any one topic completely.
  • Thylacines were such beautiful creatures. Europeans really put their foot in it when they hunted them into extinction. Come here to see some amazing old footage of these gorgeous animals, even though you may leave with a heavy heart my friend.
  • Loved the exhibits here. The art displays of tiny bones were fascinating (see my uploaded photos). Unfortunately did not have enough time so only covered 20%. Must visit again and spend an entire day
  • Nice museum but a little lacking on identification of and information about the displayed items. Will worth the price of admission (free).
