A new motor museum with displays of classic cars, memorabilia and artwork is due to open in Brisbane later this year.
The Queensland capital is set to get its own Motor Museum as work continues on a dedicated space dedicated to Australia’s motoring and motorcycling history in Brisbane.
the Brisbane Motor Museum will be located in Banyo – about 20 minutes north of the city’s CBD and one hour from the Gold Coast – and its doors are scheduled to open to the public in mid-2023.
As first reported by The racing torqueit will be one of more than 50 Australian members of the Australasian Motor Museums Association, joining the Gold Coast Motor Museum as one of Queensland’s few car-centric sites.
According to the Brisbane Motor Museum website, the building has two levels of exhibitions, as well as underground parking to protect visitors’ vehicles during the summer months.
The ground floor houses a library and a small number of exhibits in the foyer, while the second floor houses the museum’s main exhibitions, a gift shop, a café, and an auto club meeting room.
The main exhibit space will focus on specific automakers, auto clubs celebrating milestones, automotive themes and artwork, with plans to rotate exhibits every one to four months.
The Brisbane Motor Museum is currently inviting car enthusiasts with classic vehicles, memorabilia or artwork to express an interest in displaying their possessions at the Banyo facility and is offering loan periods from as little as three months to a year.
The owners are also looking for volunteers to help with the day to day operations of the company that can be found here.
