Queensland Museum


In the heart of Brisbane's Cultural Precinct in South Bank, Queensland Museum is a museum of natural history, cultural heritage, science and human achievement that tells the changing story of Queensland.

Welcoming more than 23 million visitors since its establishment in 1986, the museum houses permanent galleries including the redeveloped SparkLab, Sciencentre; the Anzac Legacy Gallery; the Discovery Centre where visitors can interact with hundreds of objects, animals and fossils; the Lost Creatures gallery about Queensland dinosaurs and megafauna; and the Wild State gallery showcasing Queensland’s unique biodiversity.

Aiming to connect visitors to Queensland, its people and Queensland’s place in the world - past, present and future, the museum 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 make up the State Collection as well as several research and conservation laboratories.
