Very educational & informative. Visit the museum building, explore the vessels. Maritime past & present from steam to recent. Look out for the special days when there are re-enactments - great for children. Visit South Bank & the river while there.

If you are the side of South Bank, give this place a visit if you into boating history, it short a short walk from the cafes and man made beach. They have very interesting things on display.

We left our visit a bit late in the day so more time would have been great. Even though there is a new bikeway going through their outdoor area, the exhibits are still accessible.

This had a couple of ships that you could walk around. They provided earphone so that you can hear specifics about each area. Talked about WW2.

Not expensive. Small museum that had construction going on while we were there. Really like the handcrafted model displays and learning about the history of Brisbane and Australia. The children had the run of an older WW II Frigate, where they could actually move the...More
