  • A decent museum in a lovely park. My wife and I came here as our first 'touristy' adventure in the city. Admission isn't super cheap and is just about worth the price if you visit everything. YMMV but the aboriginal exhibition was the best part for me. There's not a huge amount of interactive stuff to 'do' so be prepared to read lots to get your money's worth.
  • The museum is such great value for money! Took my Mum (senior, free) and my son (child, free) so only had to pay for myself! Your ticket gives you entry all day so we went out and had a picnic and went back in again after lunch. Plenty to see and interactive exhibits to keep the kids amused. Staff are friendly and helpful
