You could spend all day here. Usually a really interesting exhibition on - the aboriginal art and artefacts collection should not be missed.

“Another interesting place to visit on North Terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Like the Art Gallery, this is a great place to escape the summer heat or winter rain if out and about on North Terrace. Will probably be more attractive to young kids than the Art Gallery.

“Great museum with something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
