Stage 1 of the MacArthur Museum Brisbane was officially opened by Peter Beattie, the Premier of Queensland on 15 August 2004, the 59th anniversary of the end of the war in the Pacific. The MacArthur Museum Brisbane is located on the 8th Floor of MacArthur Chambers on the corner of Queens Street and Edward Street, Brisbane, in south east Queensland, Australia. 

MacArthur Chambers which is now an exclusive apartment building, was originally the old AMP building where General Douglas MacArthur and his senior staff were located in MacArthur's General Headquarters, Southwest Pacific Area (GHQ, SWPA)

MacArthur's office (Room 806) and that of his deputy, General Richard Sutherland (Room 807) have both been restored as part of the Museum. MacArthur and Sutherland had both earlier shared Room 809 on the same floor.
