Army Museum of South Australia

Established in October 1992, the Army Museum of South Australia collects, preserves and exhibits the history of the Australian Army in South Australia, in peace and war.

The museum galleries recount South Australia’s involvement in a variety of Australian conflicts from the colonial era in the late 19th Century, through to the more modern conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The museum is transitioning its displays to give greater emphasis to the modern-day Army in South Australia.

A theatrette, small shop, comprehensive library, and the Research and Education Centre also support both visitors and researchers.

Donations of memorabilia and historical artefacts are gratefully accepted in accordance with the museum’s collection policy.  

The museum relies heavily on the efforts of volunteers. Please contact the museum for further information.
