  • The Egyptian display was perfect. The different floors of exhibits will keep adults and kids alike very interested and busy. There was a multitude of different displays to suit every bodies likes and wants regarding Australian wildlife, sea wildlife and dinosaurs too. The staff where exceptional. I could have stayed there all day.
  • Excellent day out with the family. Kept us all engaged for hours. Recommend the Egyptian display too. Such a great collection of artifacts, well laid out with explanations and history. Good parking, nice cafe, a great day out. I remember seeing wheelchair facilities too. Please like this review if it helped you out.
