Whether you are a local or a tourist to Brisbane, a guided tour provides an opportunity to learn something about the art, architecture and history of City Hall – the building lovingly known in Brisbane as “the People’s Place”.
Built between 1920 and 1930, the heritage-listed Brisbane City Hall is seen as the heart of Brisbane and has been the backdrop to many cultural, social and civic events. City Hall is the civic seat of the city and is home to the Lord Mayor and Deputy Mayor. It also plays host to community and corporate events each day. Unlike a heritage home, it is a busy and active working building, so you may find that some of the rooms and features are not open to the public on certain days.
Accompanied by a professional guide, these tours provide further access to as many different parts of the building as possible.
Our story is Brisbane’s story – the lives of those who lived here, the events that have shaped our history and the places which we hold dear. As a museum dedicated to the city, we celebrate the people, places and stories of Brisbane.
Rather than a museum of fossils and old bones, Museum of Brisbane is part of the living history of our city. We examine how Brisbane and its people continue to change over time and reveal how each of our individual and collective stories are the milestones of our city’s evolution. We explore seemingly ordinary people and places of Brisbane to uncover unexpected and fascinating stories
Museum of Brisbane presents these stories through an innovative mix of social history and visual arts. Every exhibition is an opportunity to discover more about ourselves and our city. Our carefully curated events, workshops and tours are designed to help you delve even deeper.
We are a space where stories unfold — a place for meaningful dialogue; enjoyable, entertaining experiences; and a place to explore and share in the identity of Brisbane.
