Museum of Brisbane is central to conversations about the evolving life of Brisbane, its histories and contemporary cultures.

Housed within iconic Brisbane City Hall, MoB celebrates the creatives and history makers to deepen an understanding of place. Museum of Brisbane is Brisbane City Council’s leading history and art museum, where you can experience our city’s vibrant culture.

Museum of Brisbane opened in October 2003, on the ground floor of City Hall. In 2010, when City Hall closed for restoration, the Museum relocated temporarily to nearby Ann Street. MoB reopened in April 2013 after a significant refurbishment of City Hall. Now located in a purpose-built gallery, Museum of Brisbane is on the top floor of the revitalised City Hall, offering views of two of the building’s heritage features, the Clock Tower and copper dome.

During the Brisbane Open House weekend, the Museum exhibition program includes Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane, The Local, Commune, Clay: Collected Ceramics, Focus Shift and Perspectives of Brisbane. Entry to the Museum is free.
