After almost 10 roar-some years, our Lost Creatures will be taking a well-deserved break while we refurbish the exhibition. The exhibition will be temporarily closed from 11 July to mid-2023.

Next time you visit the museum, don’t miss a dino-mite photo opportunity with Queensland’s own Australovenator and share your pics with us on social media #qldmuseum and @qldmuseum


Check out these videos to learn more about our Geosciences Collection, from research in the field to preparing specimens and putting them on display. 

Recreating Lark Quarry footprints

Queensland Museum Palaeontologist Dr Scott Hocknull discusses the Lark Quarry trackway and some of the methods he uses to research the behaviour of the dinosaurs whose footprints were found on this famous site.



Managing the Ancient Environments collection

Queensland Museum’s Collection Manager, Ancient Environments, discusses her role and how she helps to manage the collection to ensure it is carefully maintained for future generations of Queenslanders.



Palaeontology research in the field and in the lab

Find out from a Research Assistant what it’s like to discover a fossil on a dig site and some of the methods the team uses to recover and preserve them for their research.



The generous support of BHP has allowed Queensland Museum Network to share this story, and tales of other creatures that roamed Queensland during our ancient past. This long-term partnership continues through Project DIG, a creative alliance that will digitally unlock the State Collection and ground-breaking research for visitors and scientists worldwide.
