We have been often, being locals. MOB has amazing staff who come up with the best exhibitions. Quite inspiring, and good for locals and visitors. Highly recommend it. If you have time visit the clock tower!
Very nice little museum with great exhibits on life at sea. A few really small boats you can climb in and walk around and the highlight was the Diamantina frigate. I was not too interested in sea things but was still happy with the afternoon visit. That is the benefit of a live visit.
Not good value for money. Although the staff is very enthusiastic, the exhibits and ticket prices in the museum are a bit biased. Not suitable for young children, teenagers may be okay. If people who like ships can come and see it, it is not recommended simply for tourism.

Arrived early this was good as no air con in the ship you go in.This is a small boat yard museum at the end of the South Bank, the main destroyer is laid out easily to walk through with plenty to look at and read about from its era, giving a great insight to how life was for those on board back many years ago.She was in a dry dock to give you a proper look at her overall size. After this we’re some smaller craft an engine room and various guns etc from the war.We spent a couple of hours here and would highly recommend to any history buffs or ship lovers. They also had on the walls many of our “sayings” then a full explanation of where they originated from.
The Queensland Maritime Museum is a famous comprehensive museum in Brisbane, the kids will definitely enjoy it, the tickets are well worth it, we took the kids to see Diamantina and it was very interesting, but for different reasons.
A couple of hours well spent and my thanks to the volunteers. Sad there are plans to close it. This is one place the Qld Government should be supporting.
If you are interested in nautical, this is the museum for you .. personally, I quite enjoyed it, with its historic pieces
Despite having COVID restrictions, this is still a great place to visit and plenty to see. Much of local maritime history to view. The Diamantina is the pinnacle exhibit but unfortunately COVID ru...
This was a pleasant surprise. We learned quite a lot from our visit. Loved being on the ship. Would recommend a visit to here.
An interesting maritime museum, having the advantage of being on the Brisbane River and incorporating an old dry dock. The permanent displays are quite good, albeit rather eclectic. You can go aboard ...
