My five stars are for the free museum with its world-class exhibit about the people who make Brisbane - "100 people, 1% of the population each" theme - their stories, interviews, and lots of interactive stuff to keep all entertained and educated. Also great history themes - floods, fires, convicts etc.

A stunning piece of architecture right in the heart of the city. Its been beautifully restored and is well worth a visit. On this occasion we didn't get to go in but enjoyed its beauty from the outside while on our way to see Anzac Square. Great for a photo stop.
