“I’ve visited this park several times since moving to Brisbane, and I love it more each time. Today I took my son, and while he enjoyed the playground and exploring, I walked through the gardens, appreciated the flora and fauna, and found a beautiful, quiet spot for a short meditation session. It was easily accessible from Roma Street Station, the toilets were clean, and the water refill station came in handy since we stayed longer than planned. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!” – Mexwell Watson
Queensland Museum is a museum of natural history, cultural heritage, science and human achievement that tells the changing story of Queensland.
The Museum houses permanent and changing exhibitions and also provides in-depth education experiences, innovative public programs, early childhood activities and entertaining holiday activities.

Behind the scenes, the Museum is home to millions of objects, specimens and artefacts that tell the changing story of Queensland.
A popular destination for South East Queenslanders as well as visitors from around Australia and overseas, the Museum has welcomed over 10 million visitors since it was established at its current site at South Bank over 20 years ago.
Part of Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct, Queensland Museum is within walking distance of the Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Performing Arts Centre and the State Library of Queensland. The Cultural Precinct sits alongside South Bank, a vibrant mix of parkland, recreational and commercial space on the Brisbane River across from the Central Business District.

“We went to the NASA exhibition – A Human Adventure yesterday. It was just outstanding. There was lots of information, but not overwhelming . The exhibits were well laid out and plenty of room for everyone – and there were a lot of people! My only complaint, would be that I did find it a little dark, but what a great exhibition – thank you.” – Joan Swift
