Brisbane scientists are abuzz over the mid-2013 discovery of 50-million-year-old fossils—including a frog, snail, crocodile, and fish—at a local construction site. A small display is on show at this interesting museum until more work can be done on the find, adding new interest to an already eclectic museum collection ranging from natural history specimens to insects, dinosaurs—including Queensland’s own Muttaburrasaurus—and more. Children will love the blue whale model that greets you at the entrance and the interactive Sciencentre on Level 1. The museum also has a cafe and gift shop. Admission is free, except to the Sciencentre and to any special exhibitions.
