Museum of Brisbane

And the winner is…

We are excited to announce that Museum of Brisbane took out a major award at the 2015 Museums and Galleries National Awards on Friday night.


The Museum was awarded the major prize for Best Temporary or Travelling Exhibition for Costumes from the Golden Age of Hollywood. The judges said the exhibition was first rate, highly engaging and beautifully designed. The exhibition, curated by Christopher Salter and Dr Nadia Buick, closed Sunday 24 May 2015 and was exclusive to Museum of Brisbane. It featured Nicholas Inglis’ amazing collection of costumes, props and ephemera connected to the cinema’s most iconic stars, studios and designers.

To add to the accolades, the Museum’s exhibition David Malouf and friends, curated by Peter Denham and Renai Grace, was awarded a highly commended in the same category.

As part of the Museums and Galleries National Awards (MAGNA) is the Museums Australia Publication Design Awards (MAPDA), which celebrates excellence and quality in design of publications and multimedia produced for the museums sector. This year Museum of Brisbane was short-listed in three categories and took out a highly commended for Multimedia (Level a) for our video “Help us finish the stories of Brisbane”:

Thank you to the many, many people who work with us to develop and implement these projects.
