If you don’t know much about Brisbane’s history, this museum is an excellent starting point. It’s free and very informative. Some of the galleries were closed when we were there, but that’s to be expected with museums when they change exhibits. Great gift shop!

I have lived in Brisbane most of my life and it was only recently that I went into the Museum of Brisbane. It was fantastic to see the displays that they have in there and learn more about this city I call home.
