More information about Commissariat Store Museum

The two original storeys were built by convict hands, and it is one of the few remaining structures from the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement (1824-42).

The museum contains rotating and permanent exhibitions with a wealth of information about Queensland’s convict and colonial history. The museum is operated by the Royal Historical Society of Queensland and also houses the Welsby Library.
