2018 is set to be a significant year for one of Australia’s most beloved and visited cultural institutions, the Queensland Museum, featuring the Queensland Government funded $9.4 million Sciencentre upgrade, Egyptian mummies from the British Museum, and the return of the phenomenally popular World Science Festival Brisbane (Wednesday 21 March – Sunday 25 March 2018).

Queensland Museum Network’s Acting CEO Dr Jim Thompson said the multi-million-dollar refurbishment of the museum’s iconic Sciencentre, announced by the Queensland Government earlier this year, was a major project for 2018, with work beginning in January.

Dr Thompson said people would notice some changes around the site while works take place, including the temporary closure of the museum’s Level 1 Museum Plaza (Melbourne St) entry from 6 December.
