On behalf of the Museum of Brisbane Board and the team, I would like to wish you a safe and Merry Christmas.
We have had an exceptional year in 2014. We opened five new exhibitions, took out the top prize for best permanent exhibition for The River: A history of Brisbane at the Museum and Galleries National Award, took home a bronze award at the Queensland Tourism Awards for Cultural and Heritage Tourism, and this week reached an outstanding half a million visitors since reopening on Level 3 of City Hall 18 months ago.
As the only cultural organisation dedicated to exploring and celebrating the people, places, identity and stories of the city, the Museum’s award winning exhibition program is developed by and for the people of Brisbane. It has been an honour to work with so many nationally acclaimed artists, photographers, writers, historians and curators this year and we are excited to share more fascinating stories about our city with audiences next year.
We are very grateful to our visitors and the generous support of the Museum’s Board and Brisbane City Council.
We hope you, your family and your friends have a wonderful Christmas and will see you in the new year!
Museum of Brisbane Director
