  • My 7 year old navigated the museum with ease in his wheelchair, a couple of the displays were a little tall for him to see. But he didn’t notice as there was so much to see  more »
  • My wife and I were very satisfied with the third floor at this museum. It told the story about the English vs the aborigines during the 18th and 19th century. Very touching.  more »

  • A very nice museum. Permanent exhibitions are free, temporary ones go for a small fee. The 2019 exhibition on dinosaurs is very interesting, and well thought out. Kids have plenty to do and see, many things are interactive. Very good for curious kids, who keep on discovering new things at each visit.
  • The museum was great to see. There was a dinosaur expo on when we went admission was $15 each and it was good but not very big. Very interactive for kids though. The museum was interesting too some great artworks and friendly staff that were happy to discuss some of them with me. And an interesting section on coins.
