  • Hands down my favourite museum in Australia. As someone not from Brisbane, I love the exhibits dedicated to the city’s culture and history. The best part is that it’s free! It’s definitely one of my favourite places to visit whenever I’m in town, and an absolute must-see for any tourists to the area. The clock tower tours are free and definitely worth doing, but make sure you get in early (they run every 15 minutes but can only fit 8 people on each tour)
  • The place is nice. I thought that they didn't speak much about the aboriginal culture in the video of Brisbane. Just a couple of sentences mentioning them. They mainly spoke about the European migration and their influence on the city. I thought that it was a shame a bit. A man organising the tickets for the tour was really friendly and helpful. I missed the last tour and he explained kindly how it works. We have to get a ticket on the day, not the previous one. It's free by the way! Probably that's why the policy. The security guard was also friendly (some can be rude when it's closing time...). Will go again tomorrow ☺
  • There are free guide tours through the city hall telling the story of the building and the city. I really like it. I think everyone visiting the city should attend it
  • Superb historical set up. Staffs are friendly. Always has interesting exhibitions, both free & ticketed. If you want a clock tower tour, do book in early.
  • Always has interesting exhibitions, both free & ticketed. The tour (Free) of the Town Hall & Clock Tower is quite fascinating, includes historical info , and visits areas not generally open to the public.
