The Commissariet Store
(More feedback needed)
$10-$30

The Commissariat Store is Queensland's oldest habitable, and most significant heritage building. The lower two floors of this magnificent building were convict built during 1828 and 1829. The third floor, now the main entrance from William Street was added in 1913.

Upon entering the museum you’ll be greeted by our friendly guides. The top floor contains the first of our rotating exhibitions that feature various aspects of Queensland’s varied and colorful history. The exhibition cabinets continue on the middle floor and feature rotating exhibitions and more permanent exhibitions that explore the colonial period in Queenslands history. On this floor you’ll find the infamous ‘Convict Finger’.

The ground floor features several handcrafted, detailed models of buildings from the early Colony of Brisbane. These models are arranged in a street layout. On this floor you’ll also find the latest addition to the Museum, the Moreton Bay Panorama and Tom Petrie interactive displays. You may notice the numbered panels on the ground floor. These panels are numbered from a previous archaeological dig and some of the items from this dig are on display on the middle floor.

Staff permitting, all visitors to the museum are offered a complimentary guided tour. Our guides are knowledgeable in the features of the building, colonial history and the exhibitions on display and are happy to answer your questions!
