General access and guided tours

Museum of Brisbane is an oasis from the hustle of the city; a sleek, contemporary space boldly placed on the rooftop of the city’s premier heritage building.

Dedicated to celebrating the people, places and stories of our city, Museum of Brisbane presents an award-winning program of free exhibitions, workshops, tours, talks and children’s activities. We collaborate with the Brisbane community, particularly artists and creatives, to explore and document our evolving landscape, identity and character.

The Museum is also the keeper of City Hall’s rich heritage, and visitors can experience a bird’s eye view of Brisbane from the top of the iconic Clock Tower and learn the many stories and personalities behind City Hall during an insider’s tour.

On show over the Brisbane Open House weekend are current exhibitions Life In Irons: Brisbane’s Convict Stories, 100% Brisbane, Bristopia, Perspectives of Brisbane and Sam Cranstoun: Impossible Conversations.
