Overview

Museum of Brisbane is located on Level 3 of the newly restored Brisbane City Hall. Our story is Brisbane's story - the lives of those who lived here, the events that have shaped our history and the places that we hold dear. As a museum dedicated to the city, we celebrate the people, places and stories of Brisbane. Museum of Brisbane presents these stories through an innovative mix of social history and visual arts. Every exhibition is an opportunity to discover more about ourselves and our city. Our carefully curated events, workshops and tours are designed to help you delve even deeper. We are a space where stories unfold - a place for meaningful dialogue; enjoyable, entertaining experiences; and a place to explore and share in the identity of Brisbane. While the Museum's story is only 10 years old, we are the narrators of a story far older: Brisbane's story.

Great fun for the whole family, plenty to see and educational for the kids . I have always enjoyed a trip to the museum well worth the effort a few hours well spent recommend.

Got to love our history, I was here for a virtual geocache, and got so much more, including a tour to the top of the bell tower and a visit to the museum, all free! So nobody gets a discount! How can you beat that?!

Well, this museum is large, awesome with the full-scale display, especially dinosaur display. They use 3D printing technology to copy 100% of authentic relics with different sizes and interaction technology on touch screens. This is must-to-visit when you are in Brisbane, even 10-hour transit like...More

This is a strange little museum - carved out from the top floor of the City Hall. The first few rooms were very average modern art. Very 'meh'... and then we got to the actual museum bit... which was fascinating. But too small...

Museum exhibits very well laid out. Plenty of activities for children. An eye opener on some of Brisbane's historical events.

Free entry, quite small, but interesting. A bit of history and much personal input from the 100% (conversations and facts from 100 risbane residents. Quite entertaining for 1.5 hours.

A standard display defining Brisbane's history and natural affinity with the river surrounds the galleries. inside the galleries are displays that are topical at the time and which change regularly.

An interesting museum about Brisbane and its occupants and history. We arrived around 12.30 on a Friday and couldn’t get a time to go up the tower until 3 so missed that. Very impressive building inside.
