We have been here a few s times over the years, but this one was the most disappointing not much of anything to see or do. Paid to enter science centre should of thrown money into the street would of been more exciting.

The Eastern & Pearson Exhibition and all other present & previous exhibitions display local history, art, creativity, costume and much more.

Situated in the city hall near Queens street. The building itself is superb of old era. Musuem is a must visit to know about development of Brisbane. Do visit when you are in CBD.

The museum is located at the city hall. It is a small museum that showed history of how Brisbane becomes a city among other things. It is free and well maintained. You can probably spend 1-2 hours in there.
