Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Wonderful museum. We didn't have much time but it was really good and I'd come back and spend more time next time. Beautiful building as well.Written 25 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- No entry fee - amazing. Make sure you go up the clocktower. Unfortunately, the perspex makes taking good photos difficult, but the view is excellent.Written 22 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Was very impressed with this free museum. The Lego Jurassic World exhibit was under construction during our visit and will require a ticket to access, but the rest of the museum was open to the public. Current exhibits involved insects, dinosaurs and a collection of Australian animals & objects. A cafe is present but is quite pricey and had a small menu. No water fountains are present unless you want to fill up from the taps in the toilets. Worth checking out if you need to fill in a few hours or want to escape the heat.Written 28 November 2023
- We decided to see the 'Qld to a T' exhibition through their T-towels display & we were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed looking back over time through the various T-towels displayed...who could forget Joh & Flo Bjelke Petersen for a laugh or two?Written 24 September 2022
- Visited on a hot, very humid November day with friends from Brisbane. Very pleased to get free admission for myself and my mate…he was retired Australian Army…sorry for his lovely wife…no such discount. Compared this smaller maritime museum with the Western Australia Maritime Museum in Fremantle and the Newport News Mariner’s Museum…much smaller, but more intimate look at the history of immigration and the dangers of the sea. Nice WW2 exhibit downstairs of the US involvement in Brisbane. Toured the frigate outside and saw the tiny, pink round the world sailboat. All in all, a fun, knowledgeable visit! Very, very friendly answer knowledgeable docents!Written 27 November 2023
- We are not art experts. We were impressed by the different exhibitions and the huge collection. There is something for everyone. Great place to visit.Written 28 November 2023
- It's advertised as 6yrs+ but I took my 3.5yr old and he loved it. Of course there were some things he didn't understand but would recommend for little ones as well. We went last Tues, lucky we got into the first morn session coz the next 3 sessions were booked out by school groups, so maybe worth booking online if you can. Three small spaces but kept us entertained for over an hour.Written 27 May 2023
- A really good museum about General MacArthur, World War Two in the South Pacific more generally especially the Australian contribution and 1940s life in Brisbane. I very much enjoy military history and this is a good museum with knowledgeable staff. As other reviewers have said, it isn’t for a disinterested teenager.
The entrance isn’t the most obvious unless you are looking for it. Once you have found it, just ring the bell and you will be let in. I have posted a photo in order to help.Written 16 July 2023
- Didn't come here to see the house but lovely outside and surrounds within the park. Free parking available when visiting. Pleasantly surprised by the themed children's park.Written 3 December 2020
- The Commissariat stores is one of Brisbane's oldest buildings.
It is run by the Royal Historical Society of Queensland. This three story building has a very interesting history and houses all manner of artifacts and story boards about the history of Brisbane and the surrounding area. The staff (all volunteers) is very friendly and will provide you with a guided tour should you wish. The cost is $8 AUD. If you are visiting Brisbane, take the time to visit this museum.Written 26 December 2022
- Quiet little place tucked in a basement. Food perfectly prepared- I went with the unadventurous option - lamb cutlets and a salad- both were excellent. Also at the table a perfectly cooked roo steak. Indigenous artworks, bags and jewellery around the walls , available for purchase .
Great place for a quiet lunch.Written 7 October 2022
- The Tramway Museum is well worth a visit. The ticket includes riding all the trams that are running that afternoon. The volunteer staff have a lot of interesting information and stories to tell about the history of the tram service and different trams. Although it was a very hot day, there was a lovely breeze through the carriages. Our four grandchildren (ages between 4 and 10) really enjoyed themselves, especially the rides.Written 12 February 2023
- Worth it given the proximity to other attractions such as the Botanic gardens and near the bridge to the south bank. It is free to look through and the building itself is quaint and historic. There is a Robinson art exhibition upstairs currentlyWritten 4 January 2021
- Free to enter unless you want to go to one of the special exhibitions.
Lots of general knowledge about the planets and history of space travel. We just had a quick look while waiting for the bus !Written 14 October 2023
