Fun at the Museum of Brisbane

The Museum of Brisbane on Level 3 of City Hall is always excellent, but right now there is a fun exhibition that is great for children…and their parents. It is called Play Moves and it encourages interaction…”Surrender yourself to the sublime art of play.”

The first place to stop and play is at the giant looms where you are invited to weave your own creation on the walls.

In the next room adorn yourself in a furry cloak or sit in the fur lined bath and listen to music.


In the same room are installations of all shapes and sizes.

Walk down a corridor with weird creatures on one side and pull the tails on the other side for some unexpected sounds.


The office space looks fairly normal until you look more closely. The office plant dances for you and changes the lighting when you stand in front of it. The coffee cups need to be kept in the correct place. The coffee ring on the desk top will let you know the correct place. It is a fun space. Take time to look at everything.

The last room lets you control the giant images on the wall.

The exhibition is a fun and interesting way to spend a few hours. It is free and is on until 16th of April, open from 10.00am – 5.00pm.

There are other exhibitions to see as well. It is a great museum in the heart of the city.

  1. I used to work in the museum in another lifetime

    • It is an excellent museum. The Margot McKinney exhibition was fabulous.

      • Deb I can just imagine you had a very entertaining time in the Museum. It does look fun.

  2. I just love this exhibition. I got into the bath, which was a comfortable experience, but listening to the sounds was a bit creepy! I want to go back with children and enjoy it through their eyes next time.

  3. I love those interactive sort of exhibitions – I enjoyed Questacon in Vanberra

  4. Haha that is a really cute exhibition. I would definitely want to get into that furry tub!! 😀
