“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We spent a Saturday morning visiting the Museum and enjoyed the experience. My favourite area is the display of animals on ground level as well as the birds and sea creatures in another area.
There is a large display of Aboriginal artefacts that interesting.

“Excellent Displays”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

The Museum is focused on Aboriginal and environmental subjects. The aboriginal exhibits are thorough and provide an excellent overview of the tribes across the Continent. It requires a full day just to view everything.

“Lots to see from different era's and regions.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

This museum has exhibits from all over the world. There is the Aboriginal and Islander exhibitions, but also lots of animals to fascinate the kids.

Have a wander and explore the various floors. Also a nice cafe next to the entrance.

“Hidden treasures at SA Museum”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Many people will visit the SA Museum to see the Aboriginal Cultures Gallery, which is renowned for its collection of artefacts beautifully displayed and with superb accompanying information panels. However, take some extra time to move into the adjoining gallery with its equally amazing collection from South Pacific Cultures. From weapons to statues to adornments to headdresses, there are some amazing items here.
