Introduction to Brisbane

As you walk though reception towards the gallery spaces, take a moment to acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with our city with an Introduction to Brisbane. Situated in the Museum foyer behind the Clock Tower lift, this installation gives visitors a unique perspective of Brisbane through the people, moments and surroundings that set us apart from the rest.

Seven themes give opportunities to understand the forces that shape the city, and these are accompanied by an illustrated timeline highlighting key dates in Brisbane’s history.
Start your Museum of Brisbane journey with the Introduction, or have a quick read while you wait for a Clock Tower Tour. If you have only a few minutes or much more, we guarantee you will learn something new about our city.
