Premis recently completed building works on the Queensland Museum’s Touring Exhibitions Gallery and the Discovery Centre on levels 3 and 4.
The project commenced with demolition works, followed by the installation of new partitions and doors to segregate exhibition areas and service upgrades across both floors. All work was undertaken outside of the museum’s opening hours to minimise any disruption to the Museum’s operations.
As part of the refurbishment works, the Discovery Centre was relocated to level 4 of the museum to complement the Wild State Gallery. A much-loved part of the museum, the Discovery Centre has re-opened with more than 1300 objects on display, as well as brand new digital displays. The new welcome desk is now located centrally in the Discovery Centre and acts as an information hub for staff and visitors alike.
The relocation of the Discovery Centre from level 3 has allowed the museum to reconfigure the space and dedicate the entire floor to exhibitions. The 1,000 square metre exhibition gallery is now large enough to host international and travelling exhibitions on one level. The first exhibition to be held in the new space will be the museum’s largest. NASA – A Human Adventure will feature a collection of more than 250 historically significant artefacts from the Unites State and Soviet Union Space programs.
This is one of many refurbishment projects completed by Premis within Brisbane’s Cultural Centre precinct, and we look forward to delivering more projects in the future.
