Owner description: Ayers House Museum is a unique landmark and destination, the last grand mansion from the nineteenth century in the city that is publicly accessible and one which boasts some of the finest architecture and painted decoration in Australia. The museum provides an immersive experience of life in Victorian-era Adelaide with particular reference to the life and times of Sir Henry Ayers, five times Premier of South Australia, who built, furnished and decorated his family home to the highest standard. We present an active program of public events, exhibitions and special interest programming at Ayers House Museum.

We waited all day in antisapation for this tour and was a little dissapointed that we did not get to see all of it. The information talk was very interesting, and what we saw was beautiful in the way of articture and furnishings. I thought that there was more to be told but it was not on offer to me at that time

A friend and I visit Ayres House last Friday as part of a Groupon deal. The guide we had was excellent both in terms of her knowledge of the house and its history and in making the group feel included. It was a very interesting insight into South Australian vistorian era history.
Well worth a visit if you like historical properties and look out for the ceiling in the main dining room - exceptional!!

Ayers House was like walking back into time. We enjoyed learning about the Ayers family and some of the history of Adelaide's first families.

Its ok, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. We went there for a function but it didn't seem all that special to me.

We went on a guided tour which cost just $8 for seniors. The house is stunning and the ceiling of the main dining room is original and quite breathtaking. The guide talked non stop for an hour and was a wealth of information. Some of the furniture and silverware is unusual and very fine examples of the period.
