A cabinet with MHM specimens

A permanent display of high-quality mineral specimens is available for viewing by the public during business hours within the Queensland Museum, located in Southbank Cultural Centre complex. Our display is on the mezzanine floor, accessible from the Museum's main entry level. Although not large by many museum standards, (five large display cabinets at present) the numerous high quality specimens comprise the best public mineral display in south-east Queensland. We would love to see you visit. It's free entry into the museum display
