Museum of Brisbane

Learn about the magical people that lived here before the Europeans! The Museum of Brisbane at the Brisbane City Hall gives you history, culture, art, music, and dance. Learn about the Turrbal people that lived on the mainland and the Torres Strait Islanders. Did you know that Brisbane used to be called Meeanjin, the place of the blue water lilies? Beautiful, isn’t it? Learn about the beliefs and culture of the Torres Island people too, their hand-carved masks and drums, music and dance, and stories of star people! The Museum of Brisbane is a portal into another world!
