Museums are one of the most trusted information resources because they are based on the real thing: collections. They offer truly unique experiences of discovery and exploration that encourage a greater understanding of our world.

For more than 150 years the South Australian Museum has been committed to making Australia’s natural and cultural heritage accessible, engaging and fun as well as providing a place where families can learn and grow together.

Today the Museum is one of the most highly visited museums in Australia and holds collections of national and international significance. We are a leader in remote and regional community engagement as well as Australian Aboriginal heritage and scientific research.

The South Australian Museum is a not-for-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of partners, benefactors and friends. They allow us to continue our wide-ranging and celebrated endeavours which inspire and delight nearly 800,000 visitors each year.

We cherish our relationships with like-minded corporate, government and higher education organisations that uphold our mission and vision. These partnerships help to enhance our community through science, culture and education, while having a strong and positive impact on the local economy.

The generous support of benefactors allows us to continue to offer compelling, lifelong learning experiences to an increasing number of children and their families each year.

The success of the South Australian Museum owes much to the commitment of our supporters. We offer an array of giving opportunities — providing both immediate and long-term impact — that allows you to direct your support in a way that is most meaningful to you.

Please consider supporting the South Australian Museum today. You’ll be so glad you decided to help!
