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.
Museum of Brisbane 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.
The Museum explores the seemingly ordinary people and places of Brisbane to uncover unexpected and fascinating stories and delivers a changing program of exhibitions that provoke discussion and thought about the city and its communities.
