Owner description: 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 museum......took about 2 hours to see everything.
Good day out for the kids too! Some of the displays though were still there after 3 years and this I found to be a bit disappointing, but the kids enjoyed themselves and so for a family this was value for money!

I had a day layover in Brisbane and was in a temper cause the Mummy exhibit that I'd wanted to see at Brisbane Museum had closed the day before. Still, I wandered down to the museum and, miracle of miracles, the exhibit had been extended till October *senior citizens go in cheaper - check days, times). What a great exhibit, especially the 20 minute 3D film about the mummy. So many wonderful artifiacts and reading up about them made it seem like I was truly there in ancient Egypt. A must-see. Then I meandered over to the dinosaur exhibits and they were a thrill, too. Enjoyed my day. (The cafe food wasnt bad either)
