Australian Museum of Childhood, Port Adelaide

2.3
#8 of 8 in Museums in Port Adelaide
Our exhibitions cross themes from immigration and the age of sail to naval history and exploration. We look at seafarers, lighthouse keepers, shipwrecks, wharfies, windjammers, steerage, ketches and tugs. We even include the Port River dolphins.

While the Museum has a long history we find new ways to interpret the past. We present programs that are entertaining and interactive as well as educational.

Over two million people have visited the Maritime Museum’s Bond Stores gallery since it opened in 1986.

  • What an amazing historical visit this place brings, catered for the young and old, we were there for a good 3 to 4 hours. My kids were intrigued, altho one did say she went their on a school trip, but going through slowly with my kids, by the end of it. This place was a very good educational visit for my 3x kids and I, staff were friendly. They have an elevator, but we used stairs to go up and down three levels. Highly recommend this place to anyone interested, thank you SA Maritime Museum team.
  • This is an amazing place and hold such amazing pieces of maritime history. The staff are so amazing and helpful making the experience all the better. It can be busy on the weekend and during the school holidays. parking is an issue especially during the week days.
