“Great museum with something for everyone”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

A visit to the museum is always great and Adelaide is no different. A significant Aboriginal collection, great display of animals and don't miss the giant squid - the kids love it.

“Been and keep going back.”

For one of the smaller cities in Australia, this is one of the best. Vast range of displays. Very good.

“Really good museum”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Some fascinating artefacts here. I went on the museum tour and that was really good. There about 6 or 7 of us to begin with but the numbers tailed off as we went round. The guide was really very good but I think people went to the aboriginal section with the guide and were then happy to tail off and do their own thing. Great little gift shop with some unique gifts not seen on Rundle Mall.
