I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Children love the interactivity in the displays - there are lots of buttons to press, covers to lift and things that they can listen to or smell. It's a feast for their senses, and a great way to broaden their educational horizons.
There are currently four exhibitions at the museum - Gorgeous Gardens, Black, White & Shades of Grey, Unley Now and Then, and Women at Work.
Gorgeous Gardens is full of information for budding gardeners young and old. It gives many tips on soil improvement, growing your own veggies, tools, and good gardening habits. It has a fun side too, with a quirky display of garden gnomes to enjoy.
Unley Now and Then is a permanent display showcasing Unley's past, exposing its hidden history through an interactive display.
Unley residents enjoy the museum's rich collection of images and knick knacks from Unley's past, and the ability to research your house's history is very popular. For a small fee volunteers from the Museum will dig though the museum's archives to find out interesting information about your house and its occupants over the years.
The museum also assists with a family history service available from the Goodwood Library to help you learn more your ancestors.
Unley Museum is free to visit and is a great school holidays activity or somewhere to see if you're not sure what to do in Adelaide on a rainy day. It's located just south of Adelaide, on Edmund Avenue off Unley Road. See here for even more information.
Why not explore it and find out more about Adelaide and your history?
Unley Museum also presents a range of special activities during the About Time History Festival during May. Some are free, but most require reservations in advance. See here for more information.
