The Enfield Heritage Museum is located within the two hectares of historic, tree studded Sunnybrae Farm. The museum extends over three of the farm's many buildings, the 1882 Machinery Shed, the 1883 Stables and the recently built 2001 Sunnybrae Farm Federation Pavilion. Town and country life in South Australia from the 1880's to more recent times is on display.
The displays are educational, interesting and quite often humorous, ranging from blacksmiths to household items, typewriters to tradesmen's tools and leather harness to the corner store and bicycles to Gepps Cross Abattoirs Big Wheel, also carts, mowers, one ton butter churn. Hannaford seed pickler and selection of other farm machinery.
On view is the world's first prototype colour copier.
A photographic display depicts the first flight from England to Australia by Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith in the Vickers Vimy in 1919, which finally landed at Northfield Aerodrome. A nine-minute video of the actual flight can also be seen.
Entry is a gold coin donation.
