My tip is to cater a few hours when you are here, if you are a history buff. You can check out the interior of the city hall and also do the tour of the clock tower while you are here.

I'm a bit of a city nerd so I loved the chance to learn a bit about Brisbane's colourful past. The location in City Hall is a plus too.

The museum is a creative informative place to visit. There is amenitites and a restaurant. The exhibitions of our history are presented in an interesting and easy way to understand . I was very impressed and recommend this as a must see experience.

The Life of a Convict exhibition was ok, but felt it could have delved deeper still, like giving more visual insight to the period. 100% Brisbane was quirky but couldn't hold my attention. In regards to the world of museums this one had limited exhibitions,...More

Museum inside City Hall. City Hall and it’s clock tower are worth a visit in their own rights, but the museum was the standout for us. An excellent way to obtain a short and interesting understanding about Brisbane. The history of Brisbane and the current...More

One thing I found most interesting was the worn shirt fabric which had been worn by one of the convicts.
