Event description
Join a free tour of our latest exhibition, The many hats of Sir Samuel Griffith.

About this event

Sir Samuel Walker Griffith’s enormous influence on the legal and political systems of Queensland and Australia still reverberates 100 years after his death.

Griffith was a well-respected lawyer, twice Premier of Queensland, compiler of the Queensland Criminal Code, editor-in-chief of the Constitution and the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. He was also the first Australian translator of Italian poet Dante Alighieri’s famous works, and a passionate patron of the arts and education.

In 2021, we are holding special tours of our exhibition, The many hats of Sir Samuel Griffith. Come up close to original items used by Griffith and listen as our curator tells some of the fascinating stories from Griffith’s personal and professional life.

Tour dates

  • Thursday 23 March 2021
  • Monday 14 June 2021 (with Auslan interpreter)
  • Wednesday 13 October 2021

We are also holding several lunchtime Curator talks throughout 2021, in which our curator will focus on a different original item from Griffith’s life featured in the exhibition.
