Enjoy an after dark Clock Tower tour for a special insight into Brisbane City Hall, one of Brisbane’s most iconic buildings and the symbolic heart of our city.

After Dark Clock Tower Tours

Museum of Brisbane is now open until 7pm on Fridays so you can experience more of what Brisbane has to offer.

Enjoy the city at night with an after-dark Clock Tower Tour followed by intimate viewings of our exhibitions and the chance to get something special at MoB Shop.

After-dark Clock Tower Tours operate every Friday from 5pm – 7pm taking visitors up the Brisbane City Hall Clock Tower in a beautiful, old, hand-operated lift, providing a bird’s-eye view of the city.

The clock tower has been in operation since the opening of City Hall in 1930, and is 87.47 metres high with an observation platform at 64 metres, which people can walk out onto to absorb the unique view of Brisbane. Our city is ever-changing – what better a platform to watch from. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of visitors have taken a ride up to the clock tower. Whilst the view from the observation deck has changed significantly over the past 80 years, it is still a time-honoured tradition to “go up the Clock Tower”, a tradition which happily continues at Museum of Brisbane.



Fridays, 5pm – 7pm, every 15 minutes.



Tickets are free and allocated on a first come, first served basis. You can obtain a ticket in person on the day at the Museum of Brisbane reception counter on level 3. We advise you to arrive early to avoid disappointment – particularly during school holidays and public holidays, as allocations are often exhausted during these busy periods.

Please note: Online bookings coming soon.


Wait times

During peak times there may be a wait for Brisbane City Hall Clock Tower tours due to demand and limited space. Only eight people can fit into the lift, including the lift operator. We advise you to arrive early to avoid disappointment – particularly during school holidays and public holidays.



Wheelchair access is available throughout Museum of Brisbane and City Hall. Please note that wheelchair access is not available for the Clock Tower. If additional assistance is required, please contact Museum of Brisbane on 07 3339 0800 to make arrangements before you arrive.
