Step into a world of wonder at a Museum near you.

Museums are a fantastic place to visit. They proudly display artifacts from our region, giving us insight into our communities' history, culture, and way of living from hundreds of years ago. We are also lucky to have artifacts from around the world, which allow us the opportunity to gain more knowledge, empathy, and understanding about the world we live in.

Adelaide has an amazing range of Museums for the whole family to visit. Here are a list of five museums that would intrigue any child, or adult.
