A city without art is a city without heart, and at Museum of Brisbane, a vital part of our job is to be the custodians of Brisbane’s artworks and history. Between the City of Brisbane and Museum of Brisbane Collections, we care for more than 9,000 artworks and objects of historical and cultural significance to our city’s community.
Your donation to MoB will help us to develop exhibitions that support local artists and enable future generations to access and engage with Brisbane’s histories and contemporary cultures. Growing and caring for our Collection of objects that reflect the stories and people of Brisbane is vital to the ongoing success of MoB.
