  • I have been to the Abbey Medieval Festival several times and the Abbey Medieval Banquet twice, thoroughly enjoyed all of them. This is the first time I have been to the Abbey Museum and I really liked it. It is small compared to a city museum, but the information walls explain a great deal about the different era's and there are lots of various exhibits, all of which have information cards which are quite detailed. They have a special room dedicated to manuscripts. They even run kids activities there during school holidays. It's a great little museum and well worth seeing. There is parking off to the side and it appears they are planning an extension to the existing building.
  • Amazing gem just north of Brisbane. Be transported into the past and enjoy authentic history.
