Thouroughly captivating and facinating, and free to boot! Loved every exhibit and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The museum is housed on the third floor of the beautiful city hall building. Entry is free and quite a lot of historical photos and memorabilia have been collected from Brisbane's history. There is an interesting focus on the river and it's bridges and how they've shaped Brisbane's development. It is also free to take the lift up to the... More
I will preface my comments with "I am not a Museum person" - as I had time to spare and the Museum was close by I decided to check it out.

Right in the heart of this wonderful city, in City Hall no less. Free to explore, a step back in time to look at how Brisbane developed and prospered. I was meant to have come to Brisbane when they had Expo 88, however I ended up in W.A. instead. But that's another story. The exhibits are so well organized and... More
