Since 1965 the Friends of the South Australian Museum Inc. (FOSAM) have been dedicated to fostering the interests of the museum.
They do this by financially supporting scientific research projects and publications, contributing funds towards exhibits and, occasionally, purchasing items of specialised equipment or specimens for the museum’s collections.
Members' Benefits & Subscription Details:

Throughout the year, FOSAM arranges a number of functions. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
