Government & university relations

The South Australian Museum is proud to celebrate the many state, federal and international government agencies that make the Museum experience possible. The Museum is part of Arts SA, a division of the Department State Development. The Museum is also privileged to have dynamic engagement with local, state, federal and international governments to deliver on our mission.

The South Australian Museum is Australia’s most successful research museum by a very large margin. It is internationally renowned for the quality and impact of its research: research scientists at the Museum submit more scientific papers to peer-reviewed journals each year than those at any other museum. We believe that collaboration plays an important role in producing outstanding research and we have significant relationships with all South Australian, national and international universities.
