2017 April School Holidays
Wednesday 5, Thursday 6 and Friday 7
Get to be a “Mariner” without going to sea!
Come and join the fun during the School Holidays? This program is designed for children aged 8 to12 years. Adults welcome to attend and observe. Experience the following activities that have been set up in and around the Museum complex. Groups of six will take part in these activities, which will operate at set times by the volunteer staff.
The Queensland Maritime Museum appreciates the generous financial support we receive from individuals and organisations in the form of donations and sponsorship.
Financial gifts are welcomed and can be allocated to specific projects at the request of the donor and with the agreement of the Board of Directors. The current gift funds are Diamantina, Forceful and Library.
Membership to The Queensland Maritime Museum Association provides an opportunity to support the objectives of the Museum and the programs it runs. Our members participate in the day-to-day running of the Museum and the upkeep of Steam Tug Forceful.
Visit one of Australia’s largest maritime museums and discover historic vessels of all shapes and sizes. Take the complimentary audio tour. It’s a great place to visit for the whole family and the children especially enjoy exploring our BIG exhibits such as the warship Diamantina and the lugger Penguin.
The Queensland Maritime Museum was founded in 1971 and is run by a self-funded voluntary Association. The Museum contains extensive collections of historical maritime artefacts, books, documents and photographs. The collection is displayed to the public in the galleries and grounds of the Museum under the broad headings of Navigation, Lighthouses, Ship Models, Marine Engines, Vessels, and the Dry Dock.
