This event is now in the past.

State Library invites you to discover the hidden secrets within its walls as part of the Brisbane Open House weekend.

On Saturday, take a back-of-house tour exploring the climate controlled repository where rare and restricted items are cared for and stored, and the Conservation Lab where experts work on damaged items.

On Sunday, discover the award-winning architecture of the SLQ building, featuring the bespoke artwork Black Opium by Fiona Foley, the retractable wall which links SLQ Auditorium 1 and Queensland Terrace and a special curator’s tour of Hot Modernism.

Guided tours will occur on the hour from 12pm–3pm on Saturday and at 11am and 12pm on Sunday.

*Please note – Sunday afternoon tours have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience.
