Museum of Tropical Queensland

This fun museum is interactive and state-of-the-art, designed to tell stories of the high seas like that of HMS Pandora, the ship that captured the Bounty mutineers before coming to grief on the Great Barrier Reef in 1791. The museum also details the natural and human history of tropical Queensland, and there is a fun science centre included. The building is set on the water and includes a shop and cafe.
