A message from the Director

 I love finding out about the special role that the Museum plays in your life and that of your children and grandchildren.

 I know what an exciting and inspiring place the Museum is; every day I see families enjoying it and hear the stories they tell one another. 

My job, as Museum Director is to protect and nurture these stories, and to safeguard the Museum. But I need your help; please make a donation today.

Government research shows that 75% of the careers of the future will be reliant on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM Skills), but sadly the numbers of students studying these subjects is declining.  The Museum is passionate about improving STEM literacy through its educational programs.

These programs inspire curiosity and wonder about life on earth, and help children attain skills that enable them to achieve their full potential.

We work with schools, universities, local councils and the government to support education for all and provide experiences rich in storytelling, learning and fun.

Help young people in South Australia learn and develop by supporting the South Australian Museum. Your support is needed – now more than ever.

  • A donation of $50 could support a primary school class to visit an exhibition
  • A donation of $100 could enable a Museum educator to visit a Kindergarten
  • A donation of $500 could contribute to a day at a regional or remote school with workshops led by our talented Museum scientists.

Your support, no matter how small, can make a difference. 

Please make a donation today.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Yours sincerely
