Museum of Brisbane is a purpose-built gallery sitting on Level 3 of Brisbane City Hall (Adelaide and Ann Street, Brisbane). The museum is part of the living history of the city, examining how Brisbane and its people continue to change over time and revealing how each of our individual and collective stories are the milestones of the city’s evolution.

Museum of Brisbane is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm (except for the listed public holidays). It is closed on Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day and is open from 1pm to 5pm on Anzac Day. To get to the museum, enter City Hall via the King George Square foyer and take the lifts outside of Shingle Inn to Level 3.
