The Museum of Brisbane is located in the heart of Brisbane City, and with free entry and heaps of public transport options to get there, it is a great cultural day out with the family.
Not to be confused with the Queensland Museum in South Brisbane, the Museum of Brisbane is housed in a beautiful historical Queensland building and you enter via King George Square. Which is currently home to a giant Christmas tree.

The museum is home to art, culture and history, that is brought to life through exhibitions, workshops, tours, talks, special events and a vibrant program of children’s activities. You can even do a free tour of the clock tower, which is an old hand-operated lift, providing a bird’s-eye view of the city. It is a great hit with the little ones who think riding in a lift is the peak of fun.
This school holidays, there are lots of free or low cost activities just for kids through their MoB kids program, as the Museum of Brisbane transforms into a buzzing hive of culture and creativity full of big ideas for every little art lover. This includes arts, crafts, interactive exhibits and more.
