The heritage listed Commissariat Store, situated between William Street and the river on Queens Wharf Road, was hand built and completed by convicts in 1829, using Brisbane Tuff from the Kangaroo Point cliffs.
The Museum displays the Queensland History and Convict collection of Royal Historical Society of Queensland. The Store and the Windmill on Wickham Tce, are the only buildings remaining from the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement.
Also managed by the RHSQ, is the Welsby Library (on the top floor of the Museum). The Library is open to the public for research every Thursday.
Guides are included free with the entry price and are delighted to share their knowledge with all visitors, including students/teachers from schools studying the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement and Separation and Immigration of Queensland from 1824 onwards.
