Delve into the mysterious unseen world of the Museum’s collection stores with our expert tour guides. The Museum is like an iceberg – only a small part of our huge collection is on display. Behind the scenes, we have an amazing world to explore, with millions of objects and specimens.

This guided tour takes you behind the scenes for a unique chance to see the priceless collections up close and learn more about how we store and look after these precious objects and specimens.

The Natural Environments tour gives visitors exclusive access to the insect and arachnid collections area, not normally accessible by the public. This tour highlights the importance of these collections to ongoing research and why the Queensland Museum collection is so valuable.
