  • An excellent Museum considering its "regional" status. Exceptional palaeontology collection. Well worth a visit.
  • Well worth a visit. Thoroughly enjoyed my time. Well done displays, and good coffee!
  • I love the Queen Victorian Museum and Art Gallery i always used to go there when i was little withy family and go on that bridge that made it feel like you were swinging but you weren't. I enjoyed all the fun activities i could do in that little area like the rocket and the thong that you would bang on a pipe and it would make different noises. But my favourite thing to look at was all the animals and the different kind of cares and learn about history.
  • Good way to kill some time & see some interesting exhibits. My favorite was the one on the oldest beer. They are remaking it with the yeast they found. Unfortunately I won't be here long enough to try it.
  • Showcases some amazing Art. Local artists and history at display as well as some ever changing exhibitions coming around. Free entry. Must visit.
