    The curious reason attendance records were broken at the South Australian Museum

    A record 14,357 people flocked to the South Australian Museum over three days and the Museum experiencing its busiest day ever on Monday, seeing 6,724 people coming through its doors. The reason for the record-breaking crowds? South Australians are fascinated by fossils.  

    Fossil Fest, which took place from 13-15 April, gave children and adults alike the opportunity to immerse themselves in the amazing world of fossils, enjoying free hands-on activities, talks, performances and a scavenger hunt.
