Queensland Museum

The Queensland Museum Network has been building collections of the cultural and natural heritage of Queensland, its surrounding waters and near neighbors since its inception as the Queensland Philosophical Society in 1862.

Valued at more than $487 million, the State Collection comprises 1.2 million registered objects and specimens and approximately 14 million unregistered items.

We bring these treasures to life through ground-breaking cultural and scientific research and compelling visitor experiences at:

Queensland Museum

The Workshops Rail Museum

Cobb+Co Museum

Museum of Tropical Queensland

We are a museum unconstrained by borders, engaging with communities and classrooms across the state and ensuring objects, specimens and stories are accessible through a virtual museum online, workshop and lecture programs, Australia’s largest museum loans service, a best-selling publishing business, professional outreach service and now, the World Science Festival Brisbane.
