Abby Museum

**Three experiences for you to choose from!**

Join Sunstate on a historic trip to the days of the past, visiting the iconic Abby Museum, which showcases 500,000 years of Human History. See why the museum is one of Queensland’s top attractions. The museum is a treasure house of world history that engages both the young and old.

When you visit the museum you will journey through the centuries from the world of prehistoric hunters and the first farmers to the bronze smiths and the rise of the Roman Empire. There are many amazing artefacts on display from the Medieval Saxon and Norman invaders to the golden age of Europe’s Renaissance.

As though travelling through time we arrive at the Industrial Revolution and the British Empire, and that is just Western history. Cross a threshold into ancient and classical worlds. Who can resist a death mask from ancient Egypt or a rare armoured shoe from Olympia, Greece or a Tang sculpture of a lute player from China?

The Museum is air-conditioned and has wheelchair access. It is an easy walk for people with mobility issues and the coach can drop off at the front door
