  • A nice mixed exhibition more than a museum. Very interesting though. Also accessible for anyone as is free. The Museum also offers free Tower Clock tours. They take you up in the original lift and the views are great.
  • From other reviews it's possible we missed a lot of stuff as we didn't see half of the things mentioned or photographed by other people but then we also saw no way of entering other parts while walking around. What we did see was well set out but a lot of it is about the same stuff. It is free though so that is a bonus.

  • A great selection of history telling the story of Brisbane and there's a clock tower and building tour, staff were very helpful
  • The clock tour has some great views over the city. Free entry and tours.
