The South Australian Museum is a wonderful place for kids (and adults) of any age to visit. There’s so much to explore, learn and discover and the exhibitions are always informative, often interactive and sometimes we feel the need to visit the same exhibition more than once because they are THAT good! Keep an eye on our Kids in Adelaide website, and the museum’s website, for upcoming exhibitions. It is definitely a huge place, and once you have visited once or twice, you’ll get to know specifically what your kids would like to go back and see next time because its absolutely a place you could go every school holidays and see something new – FREE.
Entrance and all activities at the museum are free unless otherwise indicated, and a morning or afternoon spent exploring the museum is always time well spent. Our kids always learn so so much and they will gravitate to the things that interest them really quickly (like the giant squid in our case, we ALWAYS have to say hello to him!)
There’s heaps of cafe’s, coffee shops and lawn areas near the Museum and they often have a big screen or event happening on the lawns too!
We recently booked in to try the ‘Shadow Initiation’ – a competitive and interactive game for up to four players per team for $49 fee (iPad supplied) or $35 for members.
The Lego model of the new Australian Antarctic icebreaker RSV ‘Nuyina’ has anchored in the SA Museum’s front foyer. The 2.8-metre-long model by The Brickman comprises 113,098 pieces and took three people 237 hours to build. RSV Nuyina is the most advanced polar research vessel in the world, and this Lego-lookalike is a fun and engaging way to educate the public about the vital role of these research vessels, and perhaps even inspire a new generation of scientists and expeditioners. The massive model is full of lots of fun things to try and find. RSV Nuyina will dock at the Museum for the next year and admission is free.
See how many of the cool Easter eggs you can spot like Star Wars characters, a yeti, animals, aliens and funny situations with the crew!
