15 years of fundraising. 


The popular Discovery Centre at Queensland Museum.

The Queensland Museum Foundation (the Foundation) raises funds to support the strategic priorities and state-wide programs of Queensland Museum Network (QMN). We are partially funded by the Queensland Government. Self-generated revenue from ticket sales, expert consultancies, research grants, and support from partners and donors enable QMN to invest in new initiatives to create compelling museum experiences.


The Foundation was launched in August 2003 to coordinate fundraising and development opportunities for QMN. In the 15 years since, the Foundation has raised more than $30 million from corporate partnerships, donations, bequests and philanthropic grants. These generous contributions support the important work of sharing stories with Queenslanders, undertaking critical research and inspiring young and old alike to enjoy the wonder of our natural and cultural histories.
