National Motor Museum

Discover, Museum

The National Motor Museum is located in Birdwood, around an hours drive from the C.B.D.

It’s Australia’s biggest motoring collection with over 400 vintage, veteran, post war, classic and modern cars, commercial vehicles and motorbikes! Discover how motor vehicles have opened up our country, linking some of the most isolated communities in the world. From the stately to the absurd, from the hand-built to the mass-produced, see the vehicles people loved and loathed, thrashed and pampered, in the pursuit of their motoring dreams!

You don’t have to be a rev head to appreciate the history here and there’s also heaps of space for picnics, free BBQs, a playground, cafe, souvenir shop and free kids activities. It’s a great day out.

  • Trains! What else do kids want to see? My nephews are entranced by trains of ANY kind and whenever they visit Adelaide this is a place they adore. The National Railway Museum in Port Adelaide is an awesome place to check out Australian railway history through interactive educational activities, climbing into the cabs of trains, taking free train rides and comparing the old steam trains to the trains of today. There's even a really cool mini railway! Our Mr 3 LOVES it at the National Rail Museum and often asks to go - it's a great day out with his Dad and Grandad especially, who seem to enjoy the visits almost as much as the kids do! We can't get away with a visit, without going on the little steam train, but everyone seems happy with their ride and hearing the train whistle along the way is definitely a highlight! The National Railway Museum is well worth a look, and is very reasonably priced. It is suited to children of any age, but probably most enjoyable for ages 2-13. There's a lot to discover and learn at the museum and I highly recommend a visit in the school holidays when…
