Get up close to the world of primates at the latest exhibition at the Queensland Museum, Monkeys! A primate story.

Explore the diversity of primates — from the tiny mouse lemur to the mighty gorilla — and discover how they live, move, eat, play and interact and how they have evolved and adapted over time.

Trace the family tree to find out what makes us all primates, how humans and primates co-exist today, and what steps are being taken to protect them.

Featuring 60 spectacular taxidermy specimens from the prestigious National Museums Scotland, this immersive, family-friendly exhibition will take you straight into the heart of the jungle.
