After its renovations a few years ago, visitors can walk along the museum too see the history and changes of Brisbane. All visitor should visit this place, it is right in the middle of the city, and only take a hour too visit it.

Well worth a visit, not sure if you can remember as a school child, going to the City Hall, the elevator up to the Bell Tower used to be open to the public in those days, and boy could you see for miles and miles looking out from up there!

City Hall was built in 1930 and was for several years the tallest building in Brisbane. The Clock Tower at the very top remains a major attraction and free guided tours are available where you ascend from Level 3 to the very top in the oldest manually operated Lift in Australia - the Lift was also built in 1930.

Wonderful exhibitions open to the public. I have attended several functions in the main hall - concert, convention, ball and Lord Mayor's Christmas events for Seniors and all have been well-organised and very enjoyable.

Beautiful architecture and clock tower. Worth a visit when strolling down queen street mall. The interior looks historic and has nice public washrooms

Wonderful displays showing historical sites, and the history of the tramways, the building of our iconic cross-river bridges, the life, from scource to Moreton Bay of our Brisbane River, along which Brisbane spreads. Regular new displays showing the Indigenous original inhabitants and acollection of interviews with "incomers"fro all over the globe telling why they love living in Brisbane.

In the weeks prior to Christmas the City Hall - a beautiful building in its own right - is lit up with a project light show with its own Aussie Christmas story. It runs for 10 mins and delighted young and old. it will draw me back next Christmas.

City Hall is the seat of the Major of Brisbane, houses the Muesum of Brisbane and features a wonderful event hall that can be rented for festivities. Visiting the Museum of Brisbane is free of charge as is a tour of the clock tower, which provided a very nice view of the city centre.
