Adelaide Arcade interior

Adelaide Arcade Museum

When Adelaide Arcade was first opened in 1885, it was hailed as the most modern shopping precinct in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Arcade's extensive and colourful history is showcased in its own museum, which exhibits on the balcony level of adjoining Gay's Arcade and houses artefacts, traditional photographs, newspaper clippings, decadent clothing, trinkets and even an accordion that plays the official Adelaide Arcade Polka!

The Museum is free to enter and is open during Arcade shopping hours.

Situated in Gawler Place North, the sleek Gawler Place Canopy provides a purpose-built location for the diverse range of pop-ups, activations and events hosted in Rundle Mall throughout the year.
