The exterior view of the South Australian Museum

South Australian Museum

The South Australian Museum is located on North Terrace, directly across the road from the Rundle Mall Precinct.

For over 150 years, the Museum has been committed to making Australia's natural and cultural heritage accessible, engaging and fun, and is one of the most visited museums in Australia.

A place where families can learn and grow together, the Museum holds collections of national and international significance and is a leader in remote and regional community engagement, and in Australian Aboriginal heritage and scientific research.

There's always something new to see at the South Australian Museum, as they play host to a vibrant range of exhibitions, always aiming to inspire a wonder and curiosity of life on Earth.

Just like Rundle Mall, entry to the Museum is free all year round and is closed only on Good Friday and Christmas Day.

The Migration Museum is only a short stroll from Rundle Mall, and is a place to discover the many identities of the people of South Australia through the stories of individuals and communities.
