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 spot especially for kids and also FREE. very well done and user friendly and can be done at the same time as GOMA. Food near by and a very good walk along the river.

So disappointed. I expected a nostalgic and education experience but alas, it was an amateur and simply boring exhibition of a minute part of Brisbane. The museum is cramped and the majority cramped into corridors. It's dark and uninspiring. If you expect a museum you'll be disappointed, it's a very low standard art exhibition.

Not a huge place but lots of interesting information on the start of Brisbane and the development of the Brisbane river. Lots of interesting photos. The section on expo 88 brought back memories, worth a visit

If you're a visitor to Brisbane or even if you've lived here all or most of your life (like me),you must visit the Museum of Brisbane. It was always a lovely place to visit but now that it's housed on the 3rd floor of the refurbished City Hall, it's a beautiful space in which to explore Brisbane's history through panoramic photographs, to learn about the impact the World Expo 88 had on Brisbane & to "meander" along the gorgeous Brisbane River. Make sure you take a ride up to the Clock Tower (also free), where you get a "bird's eye" view of the City & get to appreciate the size of the Clock's bells & arms.

I was quite impressed with the Museum of Brisbane. The Brisbane River section was my favourite as it offered an interesting video of the river and local artist's paintings
