Support the Museum

Make a donation


During this time of uncertainty, museums can offer inspiration, joy, and perhaps even a sense of wellbeing. They provide a place where everyone is welcome to relax, learn, contemplate and wander - removed from the news cycle and the pressures of modern life.

We are dedicated to continuing to serve you in inventive and spirited ways, and now, more than ever, this would not be possible without your support.

The past few months have been extremely difficult for many institutions and the South Australian Museum is no different. Donations are essential to our sustainability, and will have an immediate and meaningful impact on all that we do.

All gifts, no matter the amount, are deeply appreciated and directly support the Museum’s mission to inspire in all people a wonder and curiosity about life on Earth.

Invest in Wonder. Make a gift today.
