The Old Museum is home of the Queensland Youth Orchestra and also venue for local as well as international artists.

The Old Museum has been the site of educational and cultural facilities for over 110 years.

From 1891 to 1930, the Old Museum Concert Hall was the main venue for Brisbane’s concerts.

In 1900 parts of the building opened as a museum.

In 1930, the concert hall was transformed into the Queensland Art Gallery. When the collection was moved to the South Bank, the Art Gallery occupied the space until 1974. The concert hall space was then used by the Queensland Museum until it also moved to South Bank in 1987.

Queensland Youth Orchestra relocated its office and operations to the Old Museum at the beginning of 1989. Since then, innumerable concerts with international and local artists were performed in the Old Museum.
