Queensland Museum - Wild State Gallery

Overview

Queensland Museum is nestled in the heart of Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct. As the state’s hub of natural history, cultural heritage and science, the museum is dedicated to educating visitors about Queensland’s rich history through a range of exhibitions and interactive experiences.

The museum’s newest gallery, Wild State, is fast-becoming one of the most popular sections of the museum. The dynamic display celebrates Queensland’s unique position as one of the most biologically diverse places on earth by recreating five natural habitats through a range of specimens, photographs and interactive audio-visual experiences.
