Museum of Brisbane

Museum in Central Brisbane

On the third floor of City Hall, this forward-thinking museum explores historic and modern aspects of Brisbane. The permanent Perspectives of Brisbane exhibition includes fascinating insight into the city's ancient indigenous culture, while temporary exhibitions have explored themes as varied as contemporary Brisbane fashion and the relationship between architecture, art, people and place. The result is a snapshot of a metropolis much more complex than you may have expected.

The savvy museum shop stocks locally made jewellery, glassware, ceramics and books, as well as cards and other genuinely cool, Brisbane-themed gifts.
