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 that explore the colonial period in Queensland’s 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 Queensland. These models are arranged in a street layout. On this floor you’ll also find the Moreton Bay Panorama and Tom Petrie interactive displays. You may notice the numbered panels on the ground floor – these are numbered from a previous archaeological dig and some of the items from this dig are on display on the middle floor.
