I hadn't been to the South Australian Museum since my boys were little and always enjoyed going, I was really impressed how it has changed so much and with a lot of the old exhibits still remaining. I saw it with new eyes with my grand children. Will certainly visit again.

We took our two granddaughters, 4 and 5 . They were really interested in the Aboriginal displays. They knew quite a bit too. It was a cold, wet day in the school holidays so extremely busy. We saw approximately a quarter of the displays. Hunger intervened. The beauty of it is, it’s free, warm, interesting, educational and in the city so reachable by public transport to avoid car parking fees.

Entry to Museum itself is free however, donations recommended. Need to buy tickets however for this specific David Attenborough Gt. Barrier Reef 3D Exhibition that was currently being promoted. Friendly, helpful Museum staff present in all areas - including both the shop area where we bought tickets and café on site. . This specific Exhibition transferred you by 3D magic to become totally involved and really become a part of the colourful and active underwater world of Gt. Barrier Reef. Staff present in Exhibition area attended to all our needs with full instructions of equipment required to be worn to enjoy the spectacle. Also, afterwards thoroughly enjoyed viewing all the other interesting Museum displays - some including sound/film work and particularly those relating to native Aboriginal and Pacific Island cultures all very well documented and displayed.

This is a great place to take your children. It has lots of displays and is very child friendly. We visited in school holidays and the place was buzzing. We loved the giant squid exhibit.

This is by far my favourite museum, a large area filled with Aboriginal history and culture, plenty of Australian animals, a fantastic geology section and some great exhibitions.
