About us

The Discovery Centre Queensland Museum main foyer

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. We aim to connect visitors to Queensland, its people and Queensland’s place in the world - past, present and future, through exhibitions, displays and public programs. 

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. 

Located at the Museum, the Sciencentre offers an exciting, experience-rich environment that is contemporary, user-friendly and inspiring.
