Owner description: Established in 1986 and built on the site of the former Adelaide Destitute Asylum, the Migration Museum was the first museum dedicated to the social history of migration in Australia. The Museum works towards the preservation, understanding and enjoyment of South Australia’s diverse cultures. It is a place to discover the many identities of the people of South Australia through the stories of individuals and communities. Its nine galleries, which include permanent and changing displays, trace the history and culture of Aboriginal peoples in Australia prior to colonisation, the history and impact of immigration from the nineteenth century onward, as well as the history of the site. The Museum is just a short walk down Kintore Avenue from North Terrace and is easily accessible by public transport. All of the Museum's galleries have disabled access. Entry to the Museum is free, with an optional gold coin donation. Tour groups are welcome but must book in advance. Members of the public can book a guided tour of the Migration Museum with a minimum of ten people per booking and a cost of $10 per person, concession rate $5 per person.

I was a 'helper' on a school excursion here (grade 6). The gentleman who showed our group through was great, and kept the kids' attention well. There is a lot to see and I would like to come back again some day.

The story of the 15-17 year old boy migrants endentured to farmers after the great war was enlightening. Well presented display which we all enjoyed.

Hi HelenPatric, great to hear how much you enjoyed the exhibition in the community access gallery- it's great being a space where communities can share their stories in their own words. We hope you come back soon to see the next one! Vedrana (Curator)

Hidden behind the SA Museum, this little gem of a museum is a must - it gives a real insight into the experiences of many who have come over the decades and centuries from across the seas to live in Adelaide.
