Tickets & entry

Quieter times
Cobb+Co Museum is usually quieter between 2pm and 4pm on school days with our quietest month being February.

Service animals
We welcome service dogs, however in the interest of a safe and healthy visit for all guests and the protection of our state’s historical collection, we ask you leave all other animals at home.

Purchasing tickets
To avoid queues consider purchasing your tickets online prior to your visit.

You can print your barcoded ticket at home using the PDF sent to you, or open the PDF and use the barcode on your phone, ready to be scanned on entry to the exhibition.

Printing or scanning your ticket will allow for faster access to the museum on busy days.

Companion Card program
We recognise the Queensland Government's Companion Card program. The companion of a Companion Card Holder is entitled to free entry.

If you have a Companion Card holder ticket to an exhibition or event, please have your valid Queensland Government issued ‘Companion Card’ ready to show staff.

For card examples please visit the Queensland Government website.

Audio & Visual

Sensory kits
Earmuffs and Sensory Kits are available for loan from the Front Counter.

Sensory friendly sessions
These sessions are offered during the school holidays and at these times we reduce crowding by selling fewer tickets to our experiences and aim to provide consistency in lighting and reduce noise.

Adjustments to experiences have been guided by feedback from Autism Queensland.


Use our map of high sensory spaces and exhibits to plan a visit to suit your child.

Sensory friendly sessions

Sensory friendly sessions are available throughout the year where we make accommodations to support visitors who prefer a quieter, sensory-friendly experience.
