City Hall is an old building with a high steeple. The front of the building says museam, but do not think this is an ordinary museam with artifacts and things, it is really a very boring arts museam, the real museam is over the bridge. You can pay to go up to the bell tower, where you get a very good view of the city, though the day I was in Brisbane it was free for some reason. You ride an elevator like the ones you see in the movies, those old ones with a bored looking bellhop and a sliding cage sort of door. The ride is really quite fun and when you get to the top you can walk around and look out over the city through glass windows. Giant bells above you peal out the time every so often (half hour maybe?). A good place to go for a nice view of the city, even if it is of mostly sky scrapers.

Address: Near the Roma street gardens
