Where are we going today?

The Queensland Museum is actually housed in a series of buildings, including the Queensland Museum South Bank and The Sciencentre.

Within the South Bank Museum are the Discovery Centre and The Playsaurus Place, ideal attractions for children with a fun and interactive twist on the learning environment with a great many dinosaur and environment related activities for most age groups including historical artefact touch tables. Plus they can burn off some energy joining in with the Dino Dancing show.

Over a million items are stored here in significant collections charting the regional and national cultural heritage. They have varying exhibitions of these items, plus an extensive program of events often aimed at families or children.

    We just visited the Deep Ocean Exhibition at Queensland Museum - this is an excellent hands on educational experience for families, with a clever Octonauts Trail for the kids to follow. There are heaps of interactive games and an entire area designed especially for toddlers and preschoolers. Highly recommended.
