MacArthur Museum Brisbane

Museum in Brisbane, QLD

MacArthur Museum Brisbane is a museum created to honor General Douglas MacArthur and the city of Brisbane. For some years interested parties attempted to gather support and raise funds for some form of public recognition of General Douglas MacArthur and the Brisbane Headquarters of the war in the South West Pacific from 1942-1944.

Throughout the 1990s there were meetings and fundraising efforts with the goal of creating displays complemented by interactive terminals and the development of resources for historical research.

The significance of the building continued to be acknowledged, for instance in the fifty years commemoration of World War II in November 1995.

The breakthrough came through a meeting between Major General (Ret.) Peter Arnison, at the time Queensland Governor, and the then Premier of Queensland, the Honourable P. Beattie MLA. In 2001 the Premier launched the project. Support also came from the Federal Government, the Brisbane City Council and a variety of institutions and private individuals.
