    Bookings are essential for all schools and groups.

    If your visit includes Queensland Museum exhibitions or School Programs please also read planning your school or group visit to Queensland Museum.

    We encourage you to make group bookings as early as possible, as exhibitions can be booked to capacity at peak times (final months of each semester).

  • Special arrangements

    If the session times do not meet your needs because of travel time or other program commitments, please discuss your needs with our Booking Officer (call +61 (0) 7 3840 7608) or make a note on your booking form.

    We recommend booking your visit a semester in advance if you need to make special arrangements.

    Maximum group size per session time is 124 people, which includes adults AND children. Groups of more than 124 may be split into smaller groups and booked into separate session times.
