  • Two very wonderful ladies working behind the visitor contact desk inside the natural history section. Oh, my, goodness! How ADORABLE are the giant native burrowing cockroaches. Just so beautiful. What a special treat. Had a FABULOUS day. Museums are such very important public places that make everything seem possible. Thank you.
  • Probably one of the better museum in Brisbane compare to what’s nearby. It’s not particularly big but quite compacted. I enjoyed the stick insect demo with a museum staff. That was interesting and interactive. This would be a fun place to visit with kids and family. I found it quite educational.
