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.

One Million Stars to End Violence

One Million Stars to End Violence is a love and peace-filled community project. These beautiful stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism. Museum of Brisbane is a Star Weave Community which means we have committed to weaving 10,000 stars by July 2017. Help us to reach our goal by visiting the Museum and weaving stars while relaxing in our Dome Lounge weaving a star. These stars will be featured in an installation for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Robert Andrew: Our mutable histories

Robert Andrew: Our mutable histories gives voice and form to the disconnection between Anglo-European and Australian Indigenous history, and the complexity of belonging to two cultures. For more information about this exhibition visit Museum of Brisbane.
