Abbey Museum OF Art And Archaeology reviews
The museum was well laid out and we enjoyed our visit. The displays were excellent and we now know much more about Europe and the medieval period. They had a short video on the history of the place...

An amazing museum tucked away at the back of Caboolture. The artifacts are diverse and interesting. The Abbey church is beautiful with the multitude of stained glass windows.

Quaint museum with some very interesting pieces of history. Unfortunately had a large school group when we visited.l, all well behaved but makes the small museum a little noisy and crowded. I had my grandchildren and although it took their interest for a while I did expect maybe some interactive activities for the younger children. Personally thought a little pricey for the experience. Actual Abbey is only open certain days but did sneak a pic through the window. They have a mediaeval festival in July, that looks fab.
This is a marvellous collection from antiquity right here on the bottom end of Sunshine Coast So about one hour s drive from Brisbane or less You will see treasure for past civilisations including Celt Egypt China Mesopotamia etc It’s all genuine! The collection itself has an interesting History being evacuated from war torn England then being held in Cypres then the Blue mountains before being established on a great property between Caboolture and Bribie island
