your safety is our priority

To help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus Queensland Health and Queensland Work Health & Safety have introduced a number of measures to ensure the safety of the public and the employees of businesses who are likely to be exposed to infection.

 These government safety measures mean that the museum has had to modify the way we do business.  In summary the changes that will impact customers are:

Entry to Museum

  • All individuals (or a responsible member of a group) must complete a contact tracing information sheet which will be retained by the museum for 60 days.
  • All visitors to the museum will be required to use the hand sanitisers placed outside the entry door prior to entering the museum.
  • Visitors attending the museum with cold or flu like symptoms will be asked to postpone their visit until another days.
  • Visitors with cold or flu like symptoms will be refused entry to the museum.

Vulnerable Persons

  • Vulnerable Persons will be asked to postpone their visit to the museum until Queensland Health advise it is safe to do so. 
  • If a vulnerable person wishes to enter the museum, they will be permitted to do so on the understanding that:
    • They are required to take all reasonable precaution to ensure their health and safety, and
    • The museum cannot guarantee their safety.

Armoured Vehicle Rides

  • Family groups will be permitted to undertake rides (the normal requirement of a minimum of 4 persons will still apply).
  • Rides made up of mixed groups of visitors can no longer be offered.

Children’s Playground

  • Parents must assume responsibility for the decision to allow their children to use the playground and/or the play table.

Shooting Gallery

  • Shared shooting packages are no longer permitted.
  • Spectators are no longer permitted in the shooting gallery; they may still watch the activities through the viewing window.”

Memorial Boxes

  • The Australian War Memorial has suspended the loan of educational memorial boxes until the federal Chief Health Officer says it is safe to do so.
