  • It's a nice little museum. There are two art exhibits and a big exhibit exploring the people of Brisbane, both native and immigrant. The latter exhibit had lots of multimedia and gives a very accessible history of the Brisbane area. There's also a booth where visitors can record their own story. They even attempt to capture some f the smells of Brisbane in plastic canisters with little holes on top.
  • I enjoyed the museum and learnt a lot more about Brisbane at the same time. The clock tower is pretty good too, what a view!
  • I love the theme that was going on. History of Brisbane river and paintings and arts that was inspired by it. There is a free tour to the clock tower that lasted for 15 minutes. Staft were very nice and friendly. Overall, I had a good time. :-)
  • A charming little attraction, specifically focused on Brisbane's history. Displays change often and it's well done. About half an hours worth of looking. But it is free!
  • Free clock tower tour is amazing, not everywhere will let you actually go up to the clock tower. Friendly staffs there. Highly recommend to spend some time there.
