What do you collect?

Come and see the many weird and wonderful collections from Queensland Museum and the local region including medical tools, royal memorabilia and even a polar bear.

Everybody collects something.  Our collections are a reflection of our lives over time, the people we’ve known, the places we’ve been and the things we do.

The What do you collect? project celebrates the Queensland Museum’s 150th birthday.

As a part of Queensland Museum, Cobb+Co Museum, which is also celebrating its 25th birthday, is putting the spot light on local collectors and their collections.
