About Us

The Commissariat Store is a niche museum that specialises in showcasing Queensland’s history. The museum is an initiative of The Royal Historical Society of Queensland and staffed by volunteers from the Society.

The most significant exhibit is the building itself. 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. Staff permitting, all visitors to the museum are offered a complimentary guided tour. Our guides are knowledgeable in the features of the building, the exhibitions on display, and many aspects of Queensland’s varied and colourful history!

We welcome the opportunity to conduct group tours of the museum, and are able to cater for educational groups of all year levels, community groups and adult social groups.
