World Science Festival explores and celebrates the entanglement of science and art through a curated program of thought-provoking conversations, inspiring theatrical and cinematic experiences, interactive workshops and engaging demonstrations.

Queensland Museum Network has secured the exclusive licence to host World Science Festival in the Asia Pacific from 2016-21. The only global extension of this hugely popular initiative, World Science Festival Brisbane reinforces Queensland Museum’s position as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and engagement.

Wild State

School tours at the Queensland Museum Discovery Centre

With the generous support of Presenting Partner BHP, the spectacular Wild State gallery at Queensland Museum continues to be incredibly popular with audiences of all ages and has become a priority destination for international visitors.

This immersive gallery takes visitors through five breathtaking environments — the arid outback, iconic eucalypt forest, tropical rainforest, sun-drenched
coastal zones and teeming marine environments.

The gallery content is based on QMN’s world-class biodiversity research and features thousands of real specimens framed by spectacular images that are showcased with advanced projection solutions supplied by Wild State Technology Partner, Hitachi Australia.

New regional Sciencentres park curious minds in the Darling Downs region with an interactive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) discovery-zone injected with plenty of fun. They're a place where budding scientists can discover how different forms of energy play a role in our everyday lives.

Thanks to Supporting Partner Energy Queensland, Sciencentres are now open at Cobb+Co Museum, Museum of Tropical Queensland and The Workshops Rail Museum.
