Wonders from the South Australian Museum

The South Australian Museum invites you to explore its best-kept secrets in an exciting new exhibition, which draws from more than 4 million objects held in storage across its vast collections. The museum’s collections are fundamental to understanding and celebrating the history, cultures and natural history of South Australia. This landmark exhibition will bring the stories of 165 incredible objects to life to commemorate the South Australian Museum’s 165th birthday in June 2021 – many of which have never been on public display before.
