The Museum welcomes visits by school groups, either independently or as part of a structured maritime history experience. Visits may be programmed as part of a day excursion, which includes studies of the City. Include a refreshments stop in the picnic area overlooking the Brisbane River during your visit.

Tours can be tailored to suit your students’ needs both in content and duration. It is suggested that 2 hours be allowed for a full visit to the Museum.

Tours may be managed by teachers or the museum can supply trained volunteer guides for the group. At least 48 hours prior notice is required to ensure availability of guides.

Parking for coaches is available in the Museum grounds, but must be pre-arranged.

Discounted entry fees and concessions exist for school tours.
