There is something always happening at the Migration Museum
This engaging social-history museum opened in 1986 and was a world first as well as being Australia's oldest museum of its kind. It predated the Immigration Museum in Melbourne and the Ellis Island Museum in the United States.

The Migration Museum in Adelaide tells the story of the many migrants who have made South Australia their home. It showcases both permanent and rotating collection of works, over 100-plus nationalities logged in its database, along with some poignant personal stories.
