3 Must-Visit Museums in Brisbane
Travel is the best education you can give yourself. It gives you infinite experiences, new culture and more. If you are gearing up for a trip to Brisbane, how about combining travel with learning by visiting three museums in the region?
Brisbane Tramway Museum
To make way for an all bus transport system, the Brisbane City Council planned to shut down its tramways in June 1968. But after a public meeting, it was decided to preserve the city's tramcar collection with the help of a voluntary organisation known as the Brisbane Tramway Museum Society.
In June 1980, the Brisbane Tramway Museum opened it doors to the public. Since its opening, the museum continues to develop and expand. In fact, the Queensland Government helped the museum do some major improvements in 2001.
If you want to learn more and experience unlimited tram rides on Brisbane's preserved trams, head over to the Brisbane Tram Museum. They are open every Sunday from 12:30pm to 4pm. For more information, call 07 3351 1776 or visit www.brisbanetramwaymuseum.org.
Museum of Brisbane
Located on Level 3 of the Brisbane City Hall, the Museum of Brisbane opened it doors on October 2003 and has welcomed more than three million visitors. If you want to know more about what makes Brisbane unique, don't miss the Introduction to Brisbane
from 10am – 5pm daily at the Foyer.
To know more about the City Hall's fascinating history, art and architecture, book a free City Hall Tour. Or, book a free Brisbane City Hall Organ and Auditorium Tour to witness the heritage-listed circular copper domed auditorium which was built in 1891-92.
