While on our Brisbane City Break we had planned to go to the Queensland Museum. Jon and I love the museum, and we go each time we stay in the city. This time we had Litle Miss Cooper with us, so it was a visit seen through a child's eye. Hubby hadn't been since the girls were little - and that was some time ago.
First stop was the Dinosaur Garden at the Grey Street entrance.
Cooper loved it.
Racing Pop to make energy.
Jon always enjoys it.
Life-size replica of the Muttaburrasaurus. This Queensland dinosaur lived about 100 million years ago.
Stopping for snack at the cafe was good, and something that Jon and I had never done before. Peter always needs his caffeine fix :) The prices were reasonable and the selection of food, although not extensive, was great. A lot of healthy choices, and one of the best chocolate milkshakes. We'll add to our list for next time.
There were a lot of hands on things to do.
Museum staff showing Cooper how to pet the praying mantis. I kept my distance!
The exhibition that was on this time was collections. Peter took Cooper and Jon to the Indigenous area, so I could spent time in the collections area - I like to read everything.
At the entrance was a collection of number plates.
Loved this collections of teapots - I'm fighting the need to start my own, although my collections of tea cups is slowly increasing.
A collection of beer cans to equal Peter's.
Even a collection of washing machines - wow.
This is where I met up with Peter and Jon and Cooper. I showed all the snow globes while Peter and Jon went to look at the collections.
I have most of these dolls.
The last few exhibitions here have had an interactive section. This time there was a lot of plastic 'coasters' with various pictures inside and attached to a magnet. The kids (and adults) had to make collections of things.
Off on the next adventure!
