“A little gem!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

What a little gem this museum was. It showed the history of Glenelg, highlighting changing times and fashions on the pier and the beach. There was some great historical movie footage of the trams that run from Glenelg to the city, a collection of beach fashion through the ages, and an interesting collection of items found during a dig through the layers on the beach. It was manned by volunteers who were both welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend a visit if you've got a spare hour or so.

“Fabulous museum”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This social history museum is free for a gold coin donation. It is well worth the visit to enjoy the Glenelg pier and beach history as well as a good account of the founding of SA. Well presented in an interesting and interactive format.
