Museum Of Brisbane, Brisbane Reviews
Absolutely terrible. I've seen folk museums in tiny country towns that make this look like the Three Stooges put it together . A yuppy got together with Campbell Newman and decided this trash is what the great unwashed will like. Rip it out and start again. Even the much acclaimed convict display wasn't worth the time it took to get in the lift. A set of manacles from Sydney, a soldiers helmet on loan from New Zealand, a soldiers jacket that looks like the size would fit a small child and I'd bet that's what is was , the remnants of a convict shirt and a bunch of drawings of convict era buildings ,no map to where they were not even a street name . All available on the net I might add. Don't bother
What a hidden gem! Far less busy than the otherwise excellent Queensland Museum, this smaller facility is located on the Third Floor of City Hall. On our visit the had Convict History and the history and future of Brisbane. We were there on the school holidays so a large area was devoted to kids activities, but many of the exhibits are fun and interactive. On the ground floor the is a cafe too.
The museum was intimate and interesting and the clocktower tour was led by a lovely guide. The lady at reception was friendly and very informative. However, the female security guard on entry was none of these things. She rudely asked where I was going and I said I was going to go to level 3 for the museum and the clocktower tour. She asked if I had a ticket and when I said I didn't know I needed one she said there were none left. So I asked if I could still go to the museum and she rudely told me not to go anywhere else! There were tickets available which I got when I went to level 3. The male security guard was polite and looked apologetic. What a welcome to your city!
Guided tours are free and booking into one is a great way of learning about the city and its rich history. Clock tower tours were packed by the time I got there. The guide suggested to come earlier (latest by around 10am) to be able to get one.
A fresh and different approach to a museum. It is more a celebration of the people of Brisbane, plus its history since being a penal colony. Lots of interactive displays. Going up the clock tower with a guided tour is worth it.
