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.

The museum is located on the third floor of City Hall in King George Square just off Adelaide Street. Whilst it is fairly small in size, the content is most interesting and the layout good. There's currently an exhibition called Life in Irons, which details...More

At the moment the Egyptian Exhibition is on for $20 from The British Museum & is worth a look if you haven’t previously been. The cafe has great coffee & the food looked beautiful. Well worth a visit when in Brisbane.
