1. Secret Stories
This activity is inspired by indigenous artist Robert Andrew's exhibition "Our Mutable Histories". Kids can learn how to write a secret story using wax and crayon in the museum's family-friendly workshop. They can then give their story to their friends, parents and/or grandparents and watch them reveal the message. Recommended for ages over 4 (all ages with a little help).

4.Clock Tower Tours
Experience the magic of the museum's Clock Tower tours: from stepping into the original 1930s hand-operated lift, travelling past the Art Deco-styled clock face to the final platform at 64 metres for a bird's eye view of the city. There is a reason that this has been time honoured tradition for Brisbane families for almost 90 years.
Daily, 10.15am – 4.45pm and Friday nights until 6.45pm (every 15 min),
Please note: Huge demand for tours means spots are allocated daily on a first come, first served basis. There are no reservations.
