South Australian Museum Podcast

Have you ever wondered why museums keep things, what types of things they collect, and how they are cared for?

Collection Stories, the South Australian Museum’s first podcast series, features stories about our collections, what we can learn from them, and how we share them with the public. Over each episode, Museum researchers and collection managers will share insights and anecdotes about some of the many special objects that are part of the Museum’s vast collection.
