South Australian Museum Podcast: Wonders

Are you ready to take a deep-dive with our researchers into the Wonders of the South Australian Museum?

The South Australian Museum Podcast is back with a brand-new series about our latest exhibition, Wonders of the South Australian Museum. For the last 165 years the Museum has collected, purchased or been given thousands of remarkable items in every format. From Aboriginal artefacts to insects, from the rarest of minerals to mammals, from frogs to frozen tissue.

How do objects come into collections? Why do we have an iron lung? Will anyone find a Night Parrot again? How is the Aboriginal flag connected to the Museum? Where does ambergris come from? Join us as we explore some of the amazing wonders found in the South Australian Museum and in the landmark exhibition which celebrates our 165th birthday.

Available for FREE online from 4 May. Listen on our SoundCloud or find us on your favourite podcast app.
