Families are encouraged to learn together throughout the whole museum. Children’s activities and interpretations feature throughout exhibitions within Queensland Museum & Sciencentre.

Things to see and do

Live insects

Live stick insects are a feature of Creature Feature in the Discovery Centre. Identify the nymphs (baby stick insects) and see if you can find the adult stick insects camouflaged in the tree. The Discovery Centre has other hands on activities as well as specimens such as snakes, birds, mammals, fish, spiders and more.

Get hands-on in the NEW Sciencentre

The Sciencentre is closed until mid-2018 as we prepare to bring you a new Sciencentre. Featuring interactive STEM experiences, surprising and engaging spaces where you can be a scientist, and be curious and inspired to discover the wonders of our world.
Opening mid-2018.
