See why our museum is one of Queensland's top attractions. The Abbey Museum is a treasure house of world history that engages both the young and old.
When you visit the museum you will journey through the centuries from the world of prehistoric hunters and the first farmers to the bronze smiths and the rise of the Roman Empire.
There are many amazing artefacts on display from the Medieval Saxon and Norman invaders to the golden age of Europe's Renaissance.
As though travelling through time we arrive at the Industrial Revolution and the British Empire, and that is just Western history. Cross a threshold into ancient and classical worlds. Who can resist a death mask from ancient Egypt or a rare armoured shoe from Olympia, Greece or a Tang sculpture of a lute player from China?
Do you prefer to browse collections at your leisure, or fully immerse yourself in an historical experience? The Abbey Museum caters to the curious, the contemplative and the ‘I want to get involved’. Perfect for travellers, historians, social clubs and school groups looking for a more engaging way to explore history.
