Visit the Migration Museum to soak up the social history of South Australian immigration and settlement.

Journey through the museum's galleries and encounter the immigrants who have settled in South Australia since 1836. Find out who they are, why they came and where they came from. Discover the rich diversity of multicultural South Australia through the museum's dynamic program of exhibitions.

A beautifully restored building with a tragic story to tell, the Migration Museum is housed in what remains of Adelaide's Destitute Asylum, built last century to accommodate South Australia's poor and homeless.

The museum's database of South Australian immigration and settlement history includes 101 entries.

Take a guided tour (minimum of ten people). Advanced bookings essential, price available on application. Education programs are offered to school groups at a small charge.
