Wonderful Surprise - Who Knew This Was Here!
Oct. 2019
We were on the Brisbane Open House weekend, so we like to keep in a small area (so there's not too much walking) and we thought we'd 'pop' in.
Well what a surprise. I knew some of the history but it was amazing the link to Brisbane. If you love history especially WW!!, you will love this little gem.
There is a small entrance fee normally (sorry I didn't notice how much it was).
Access is via a lift, so good for everyone.

Absolutely marvellous museum chronicling life in Brisbane in the 1940s. I was fortunate to be given a personal tour of the place by one of the awesome volunteers there. If you have any interest in WW2 history, just go!

The museum is located on the 8th floor of the building. The staff were very welcoming. The museum is small but informative, and well laid out, telling the story of Brisbane’s significant role in WW2. Entry was $10.

Great little museum highlighting General MacArthur’s US command from this very building during the pacific theatre of WW2. Its on the 8th floor. Volunteers run the museum and are happy to answer any questions asked. It also importantly highlights the 2nd AIF, CMF, AWLA, the sinking of the Centaur off Moreton Island and the huge influx of US army USN & USAAF personnel based in Brisbane at time. Worth a visit

MacArthur Museum is a must see.

The information and artefacts displayed in this museum were well presented and had me enthralled. I found this period in Brisbane's history to be particularly interesting. It is an excellent way to inform our young people about our efforts during the Pacific conflict in WWII. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We visited the museum straight after the Brisbane march and were pleasantly surprised at how well this hidden gem is presented.It certainly gave me a better insight and understanding of what actually happened in this part of the world during WW2. The way the exhibits are presented is a credit to the small but extremely decicated group that passionately present this museum. A must when in Brisbane.

Having missed out the Pacific War at school I was glad to have been here and learnt quite a bit to fill in a few gaps. Brisbane must have been an extraordinary place with a garrison population larger than her own.
